It is hard to imagine that just so close to us are human beings suffering this much. My father, a pilot, a genious inventor, the most brilliant man I ever met went from a millionaire to a homeless bum. For many years he was stricken with alcoholism. But by the grace of God, he overcame his addiction and lived the remainder of his life to give back to those in need. He never forgot where he had been. He left this earth with grace and dignity. He was a real man, a man that knew what suffering meant, yet he faced his most darkest demons and overcame them. Because of him, I sincerly care about these people. They all have a story. We all do for that matter, but, waking up in a warm safe bed is not a reality for them. Hopefully, things will change in the future so that no human being will suffer like this, However, I must say the pride of the homeless man is very humbling to me. I have met some amazing men and women. Christmas is once a year but homelessness is constant.
