They are not the homeless, hungry, poor

We call them the homeless, the hungry, the poor. But they are not Whats—they are people Who happen to be homeless, hungry, poor. We treat them as economic units needing repair and our solve-ation. We treat them as psychological problems “that” would go away if they would adopt our religion. When will we see them as persons, our friends, whole people not to service but as equals who have something to offer us? Let us ask their counsel, their help. Let us work together. Let us offer places and ways to volunteer and contribute, for in helping others is our humanity opened.
