Whom we need

Yesterday we learned of a young man who was paralyzed from the chest down in a drive-by shooting. He has no money, no insurance, and cannot get state assistance. Picture a small group of 6 to 12 people who call a meeting of a larger group, perhaps as a party and working fund raiser, and there we get ideas for helping this member of our community.

Money is not the solution to this young man’s situation. It is not even the answer to our own human problem of finding a way to help. People are the solution. Only people can give him the hope to live, and the community with whom to share his struggles and within which to contribute what he can. People are whom we need.
