invisible homeless kids

Hard to imagine that in this country way over 3 MILLION kids are without homes. H-O-M-E-L-E-S-S Kids. I don't get it. Are we willing to discard these kids? Not me. So this blog will relentlessly focus on this issue, hoping to light a spark to fuel a compassion epidemic. Chime in, argue, but do something....

The Right Attitude Within Our Reach

Start the New Year off right. Believe in possibilities that can change the abysmally dysfunctional way our country has been traveling, thus end unnecessary suffering for so many families, teens and adults who lack a place to call home.

One of my favorite daily reads is a site called DailyGood. It offers an inspirational quote and a short essay focusing on, well, good.

Today's offering provides a balanced way of looking at our world--with its imbalances--and gives us a boost in the _____ (insert part of anatomy here) so we can be a part of the solution instead of the problem.

Seems to me the New Year is a good time to shake off whatever old year dust that lingers and, taking a breath filled with hope, challenge ourselves to improve our relationship with Creation at least a little bit. A fresh start, if you will, that can harness the goodness in us and around us to ease the discomfort we experience and witness. To all who read this blog, thanks for coming back. Don't be shy! Share a thought or two. And thanks for the goodness that happens because of your presence in the world.
