A friend of mine wrote this piece about finding Hope in Humanity. There is something to this:
…that’s the real problem of homelessness, more than anything else. It’s that we don’t know how to look at what is happening right in front of us. We use our privilege as an excuse to be blind, to be numb, and we ignore the fact that we’re losing our own ability to be human. We convince ourselves that homelessness is someone else’s problem, that we do not have the tools or the knowledge or the means to change anything.
It is amazing what we can to see, or not see.
