Don't Beat Your Children, Or They'll Turn Out Like Me
by Brad Bathgate

"A book of haiku's that brings sunshine to the hood when frowns dominate. Ever seen corner stores in the middle of the block, with poverty performing on the corner? If no..

Everyone should be warm
Not suffering from the cold
Can you offer them a blanket
A candle they can hold
No one should be hungry
Can you spare a fresh hot meal
Even thou they may be homeless
They can see, hear and feel


Christmas carols in the air
But so many feel only pain
No home to call their own
Children crying in the rain
We pass on by the sick
Hoping not to see their tears
Their pleas whispered by the wind
Seem to fall on deaf ears


Can't we care a little more
Reach out a helping hand
They're not asking for the moon
Just someone to understand
What we just take for granted
Could make another person's day
Give a little of yourself
Is what I'm trying to say....

My resolution for the new year is to help others whenever possible. Everyone deserves some comfort as they live in this world. In the richest country there are so many things that we can do and I hope that this will be the year when they are done.

Thank you Linda,

A compassionate plea from a compassionate soul. Thank you, Linda. Love and peace to you.

This is a much-needed reminder that living among us are some who suffer needlessly. How much would it take on our part? Perhaps just cleaning out a closet or two would yield some much needed warm clothing for someone who has no place to escape the cold. Fleece blankets are now only about $5.00 and seemingly available everywhere. I picked up a couple yesterday at the grocery store, intending to give them away to some in my neighborhood who are obviously homeless. If we have extra food that we know we will throw away, it is easy to pack it up and take a short trek to a nearby park to find someone who is in need of a hot meal. It doesn't have to cost us anything, really, but it is important to remember that there are those who need our assistance. Nice hob on this "from your heart" write, Linda.
Take care,

Yes, Love is our purpose and mission. Even a smile wrapped in kindness or a hug that gives brief warmth may be just enough to keep the "Candle of Hope" burning.
