I am having mixed feelings towards homeless people this morning. As I was walking to work today, I was splashed with coffee by a man standing outside of a shelter in downtown Ottawa. Whether it was on purpose or accidental is not the issue.
The issue is much bigger than that. In a perfect world, we’d all be well provided for by fairness and justice for all. In a perfect world, the man who splashed coffee on me would not be sucking on a cigarette and gulping down coffee on the sidewalk outside the Ottawa Mission on a slushy November morning.
Poverty and desperation is all around us. You can’t get away from it no matter how far you roam. TravelPod bloggers have found the same horrible conditions around the world. Here are some intriguing photos I have found while perusing the blogs today.
