    I feel pulled towards the needs of the homeless always.
    A good book,
    “Under the Overpass” talks about how best to help.
    Thanks for the loving reminder to give

      Thank you for the suggestion of a good book. I agree, the homeless are often overlooked. I went to LA with a group several years ago, with the mission to help feed and clothe the homeless community. It was quite an eye-opener, and quite humbling.
