"The world is full of lessons. I bumped into a homeless man tonight and we had a 15 minute conversation on life and politics. The man was clearly intelligent, but definitely had made mistakes. The homeless suffer from more than just being broke. They are abandoned and shunned. The homeless at least need encouragement. Next time you see a man, head down in the cold; keep in mind he's a person just like you." - Jordan Steele
When I read this on my son's Facebook status, my eyes welled up with tears. He is your typical 20 year old - BassNectar pounding through the stereo speakers, a cloud of cologne following him from room to room, and a knack for noticing any pretty girl who passes his way. He's your typical college Sophomore. Every so often I am given a glimpse at the layers of depth that lie beneath the surface, and reveal the compassionate young man he is becoming.
I think Jordan said it best. No one should be shunned or abandoned, especially those out in the cold. Bravo.
