Moments of Food, Water, and Shelter
A week ago was Thanksgiving in the United States and my friend and I decided to spend part of the day volunteering at a community lunch. Most of the people that came to the lunch were quite poor and they were grateful to receive a free meal that included turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, salads, and desserts. When the meal was over there was lots of food leftover including apple and pumpkin pies that hadn't even been baked. My friend offered several people small boxes of the food to take home, some accepted but others declined. One of those that declined the food was a woman with her children who said "It's so nice of you to offer the food to us but we have no kitchen to cook or store the food because we live in a car."
In this world there has always been and always will be the rich people who have grand comforts and there has always been and always will be those in the middle who have average comforts and there has always been and always will be the poor who have little and try the best to survive. Whatever our social class each human being deserves to have blessings of basic needs such as food, water, and shelter.
I'm forever thankful for my moments of "having food, water, and shelter" and my wish is for everyone to have the comforts of having food, water, and shelter.
BLESSINGS TO ALL!
