    I was doing some minor street outreach last month, some volunteer polling at a few of our local underpass encampments, counting numbers of kids and families, referring local resources and support transport and such. Had a common argument with a fellow social work associate back at base camp who was touting recent city council tenets about the age old redirect justification of not giving any money to the homeless because theyll use it for drugs or alcohol. And while in many cases that of course is going to be true, it doesnt matter. You cant qualify the manner in which youre going to help out by predicting the intent of what theyre going to do with resources. You cant qualify generosity at all. Even if your five bucks goes toward a joint or some crack or a can of Colt 45, your intent to help is no less valorous, and most people use that excuse to avoid helping out at all. The bottom line is, even if they use my assist in a cyclic addict manner, it still eased some suffering, however skewed it might be on their end. The choice is up to them what to do with my assist, not up to me. They can trade your blanket or your sandwich for half a smoked blunt if they want to.

    Helping out is helping out. Being generous without caveat makes the world a better place. Unconditional support is just that. Even for a couple bucks or an old concert tee.

    I try to keep a case of these in my back seat (beef or roasted chicken flavor), handing them out my window to folks on corners, or grabbing a couple cases and driving around certain areas of downtown around mission area sometimes. It's an instant hot meal for someone who may be hungry, and people really like 'em.


    Sometimes I keep a pack of socks on hand too to go along with the cup-o-noodles, and in the winter I stock those instant hand warmers in my car to hand out. It's not much but it's something and there's a lot of cold and hungry people out there.

    Ive fell in hard times before and I had a few folks who really helped me and not only gave me assistance but helped kinda change my mindset on certain things.

    When you are struggling and you reach out to a few people, you really do see the good side of humanity. Not the republican vs. democrat bad side of people. It does give a little hope for the future.

    When all is said and done, politics don't mean shit. It is somewhat dependent on what you believe spiritually, but...in the end, we're all brothers and sisters, and it doesn't matter where you were born or what you believed. It only matters how you cared for others...people you know, people you don't. We're all connected. Mindsets can be changed, and perceptions can be tweaked, but the heart binds us all. The homeless guy living in a tent by the freeway is my brother, same as my brother. I just don't know him yet. But I will.

    My Mom said many times that I always cheered for the underdog...
    I've had a weekly payroll deduction of $10.00 since Feb. '99 going to The United Way, and I support various other causes & cases. This is of course in addition to, for example, buying an extra sub @ Subway and giving it to that person who just 'looks' like they need it... Kudos to y'all ^^^ and your own efforts!
