I must say this poem touched my heart. Reminds me of a poem I wrote years back titled "The Unfortunate Man." In a second, you gave faith to a victim of the streets. It is your generosity that she shall never forget when others walk by without a glance. Though she may never see you again. She will never forget. Nor will God...

|It is so easy to turn away or to let fear keep us from taking a moment to exchange a bit of human kindness to those who suffer from aflictions we may not understand. We tend to judge others by our self and in doing so forget that "there, but for the grace of God, go I..." Your words do indeed express the true meaning of Christmas. Charity is a virtue that few of us take to the extent that we should as we continue to confuse our needs with our wants. A few days ago, as a friend of mine was telling me about the car stereo she was going to buy for her husband, as a Christmas gift, at a price of about $800.00. I thought to myself, UNICEF could innoculate an entire community of children for that amount of money and still have enough left over to offer protection and education to adults to teach them about stopping the spread of HIV. You certainly strike a cord with me in this offering, TD. Thank you for taking the time to stop by and deliver this potent message to all of us.

|I know this very same lady and, in Savannah, her name was geraldine. They are all a part of my heart and though the names are different their love is needed everywhere. It's always our turn to make things a little better. When we pass them by doing nothing is the worst thing you could do for them, this world, our children and yourself!
Love and blessings!

|Best way to do things, without recognition and fanfare as many do. So very heartbreaking people even have to live this way. It can happen to the best of us and many times does....
Have a very Merry Christmas and joyful New Year!
