The poor are not just garbage
I’ve noticed a disturbing trend, recently wherein newspapers reporting initiatives to aid the poor refer to having to clean up streets or sweep off the street 50 homeless people.
Words are powerful and indicative of attitude.
Until we elevate our attitudes towards the poor and homeless above viewing them as garbage or dirt —for which we hire city sanitation and street sweeping crews — then we’ll never be able to realistically help these people in a meaningful way.
