Have the Homeless Become Invisible?

We are all family. May it not only be the homeless, but may the feelings in our own hearts and spirits be more visible, felt, and present in ourselves and our world.
With Love,

    Sadly no they have not , people have become uncaring of them.

  2. Sad but true…even when we see the homeless we often don’t ‘see’. Under the right (or wrong) circumstances it could be any one of us…. They are not derelicts but human beings who have had life changing things happen to them… Diane

    Wow! Woe!! Powerful… huh? If I have the Fruits of the Spirit, LOVE, JOY, PEACE, KINDNESS, FAITHFULNESS, etc, how can I walk on by? But I do. Woe! What a wake-up call!! Powerful, indeed. Thanks for posting, Russ. I work at our local Food Bank. I volunteer at our local Nursing Home. There is no Homeless Shelter in my little town and no obviously homeless folks on our streets. BUT, this will certainly cause me to open my eyes a little wider. Thank you!

        Did I tell you how much I appreciate you? Have you talked to Brad? Has my friend, Janet, been in touch with you? I passed your anthology info on to her today. Best of luck, Russ, with your wonderful projects.

          Many times, my friend, and each time I’m honored and humbled. Brad telephoned yesterday. It was a pleasant conversation. You are likely to soon hear from him about the story and anthology. I’ve not yet heard from Janet, but look forward to doing so. Thank you for your support and encouragement. With the help of people such as you helping to spread the word about these projects, I plan to help 30-60 writers and poets get published this year and help those who are already published to grow their fan base.
