Among the afflictions and indignities borne by the homeless, the surreal news of a Medicaid scheme that preyed on them - perpetrators made millions by recruiting the poor for bogus medical tests in exchange for free shoes - is uncommonly vile. Most days, the homeless are just shunned, scorned, ignored and assailed, as a new campaign by an advocacy group makes grievously clear. Watch homeless people read vicious tweets about themselves. Then weep for the species.
“Seeking Human Kindness” says it all. “We who wished for kindness could not ourselves be kind”, Hillel.
I was homeless for three years back in the 70’s. The things I’ve seen and the places I’ve been…I guarantee the average citizen wouldn’t last five minutes on the street. They’d be screaming for their mommies. Easy to criticize from a nice warm living room with a full belly. Chickenshits and cowards.
