A lesson in empathy at the Guest House.
Josh. I have been fortunate enough to have had some very moving and sometimes even humorous times working and talking with the street people who lived around my Denver VISTA neighborhood back in the late 60s. They helped me perhaps more than I did for them by giving me a compassionate understanding of the many paths that lead too many to the invisible depths of our society. Thanks for sharing one of your experiences.
You're a true mensch, Josh. I wish I had your empathy and people skills.
There are many folks like Donna just outside of the SF Friends (Quaker) Meeting House, which I've been attending for a few months. Some of our Friends help them when and as they can. But a city of such tremendous wealth can and should house every one of its residents, and treat them with the dignity they deserve.
