BTT Feeding the Homeless Program
What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think about a Holiday or celebration? To most people it would be food. What would those in need and without any food think when there is a Holiday or celebration?
Many years ago, while crossing a bridge I saw a man walking in a very sad and defeated way. Typically I have always been very sociable and an excellent conversation starter. For some reason, I stopped to ask him how he was; even when it was clear he was having a terrible day. Suddenly a conversation starts and by his clothing I could tell he was in dire economical situation. I felt a bit awkward when this man starts tearing and then broke into all out crying. When I learned he had not eaten in three days, I offered to seat at a nearby fast food to continue our talk. When we stepped away from the bridge, he looked back and told me ''you just saved my life, I was walking to the middle of the bridge to jump''.
That day I learned that all it takes is a little pocket money, a little kindness and only a couple of moments to save a human life. Even when we may have nothing to give, even a kind word could make a huge difference. Are we our brother's keeper? you can bet we are.
