HELP THOSE WHO WEAR RAGS AND CARRY THEIR WORLD IN TWO CARRIER BAGS

As I walked down the busy sidewalk, knowing I was late for an important interview, my eye fell upon one of those unfortunate, homeless vagabonds that are found in every city these days.

Wearing what can only be described as rags, carrying every worldly possession in two plastic bags, my heart was touched by this person's condition.

Some people turned to stare. Others quickly looked away as if the sight would somehow contaminate them.

Recalling some long ago Sunday School admonition to "care for the sick, feed the hungry and clothe the naked," I was moved by some powerful inner urge to reach out to this unfortunate person. Where some people saw only rags, I saw a hidden beauty.

A small voice inside my head called out, "Reach out, reach out and touch !!"

So, I did..........







I get out of the hospital in about 3 months.
