I got these many of these quotes from ThinkExist.com
What got me on the subject was two homeless women hiding beside support in front of a big box store. Since I retired my mind does not race the same race I did everyday when I worked a forty plus hour a week.
Nonetheless I drive twice a day on weekdays through my hometown, I have noticed an area frequented by homeless. This store borders a wooded area that looked like people used. I parked beside the wooded area for shade, to roll my window down a bit for Louise my dog's comfort and run in the store early one morning.
After loading my purchase in my trunk, I saw the women. One had her bedroll. They looked a little dirty. Louise made a small noise which meant she had met them. I was glad I locked the car doors. Its not the trash in the car, it is Louise's safety. I do love her.
The women made me think of shadows as they walked across the long parking lot. I always feel humble when I see people in this predicament.
