Most of us are very fortunate to be living so comfortably in our homes with good meals and fairly healthy lives with family and friends when possible. Many of us have TVs, telephones, computers or iPads and vehicles. We also have financial means.

But we must look after our neighbours who are living in the streets anywhere they are able to find a spot to sleep and eat whatever they are able to find. There must be something more that we as a community can do to help them.

We must walk in their shoes for a day to appreciate their situation.

But for the grace of God go I. We never know what is down the road for our future.
