Speaking with homeless is eye-opener

News Feb 09, 2011 Ancaster News

I recently did some community volunteering in downtown Hamilton and was hit hard by the life of homeless people.

I walked among the crowd and saw and spoke to a few people. I was always been one of those people who would, at every cost, avoid a homeless person, be it at the corner store or at the mall. I just didn’t have it in me to look at them and say, “No, I can’t and won’t help you.” I heard a few stories, and a lot of the homeless people blame the life they live on themselves.

Some people had a great life, but chose the use of alcohol and drugs over family and friends.

I know people today live a life where they are always on the go, but if you have the time, stop and talk to some of the homeless. You will be surprised with what some of them have to say.

Remember, helping others when you can is great but helping others when you can’t is the greatest feeling a person can have. It gives you the satisfaction that you have completed a task, and, in the process, have made someone’s life a little better.
