the homless voice.

Backintheday, when I went downtown a lot and spoke to strangers, and when homeless people were actually homeless and not scamming rich people living down the street in a lush condo, I used to give some of my time speaking to the people on the corner. Threw them some change. Bought them a burger. Pop. Got to know them. Know their story. I always had a soft spot for the kids and the old folk. Especially at this time of year. I know it might be cliche if you grew up in the 90s and had the bombardment of various sitcoms where they spent the holidays feeding the needy, but I always thought I should've given back more. Did my time there and helped serve the grub to the good folks of our city. But I didn't. Remained up north in my nice house. Surrounded by gifts and family love. Be it as it may, this video I found on the Vimeo tonight, pulled a heart string. Maybe I'll make it a point to gather the folks and find a shelter in Michigan to do our part. Oh yeah. Spending the Holidays in The States. More on that later. For now, watch and be thankful..
