Footprints in the Windsm # 862

What makes us think poor people have no good ideas, cannot help their own condition? That if we bring together a million poor, homeless, sick people, there will not be one good idea among them? Ahh, you say, if they had the idea, they would have instituted it.

Well, how do you know? When you are really ill, do you want to get busy and organize people? What if you did not have the skills—did not even know it was possible—to organize people to make a change? What if your whole life had been met with frustration and whatever you did led you to stop trying because trying was futile? What if you were never heard?

We can hear each other. This is the essence of life. When we are heard, we are real to someone. We matter. We are real.

Our main task on this orb is to increase the heard.

Please pass it on.
