U.S. Homeless

This morning many schools in the area are closed due to the weather. The temperature is -15 right now and we have a high of -3. I have a new thought since I have met my homeless friends. Where do you go in this frigid cold and you don’t have a home? The cherry street mission is seeing more people when the temperature drops, I saw an interview that one man was thrilled because when it is so cold he gets 2 blankets to use in the mission.I watched a you tube yesterday about the homeless and thought I would share.

Tomorrow I will get to experience what is like to be out in the cold at Food For Thought but I know in a few hours I can get into my car, drive to my warm home and be with people who love me. Many in America are only a few paycheck away from being homeless. Our President Elect has stood on change and I think many of us are ready to see the change, a better life.  My Grandma always said “better days are coming” and I think many are ready. Have a blessed day.
