Homeless, but Not Hopeless

Local organizations help homeless pets and their owners

Animals can be a huge source of comfort and companionship for the homeless, and it is an incredibly simple act to grab an extra bag of kibble the next time you're at the grocery store and to drop it of at a food bank on the way home.

Letters From Downtown

Signs of Compassion

When you work Downtown, when you're here day after day, you deaden a bit to some of the things you see. A couple huddled in a doorway on a cold November morning, a worn-out blanket barely covering them; cops on bikes pulling a homeless man up off of the sidewalk, a puddle of vomit at his feet; an elderly gentleman in suit and tie, stalking down the street and shouting curses at the demons leaking from his head; none of these things provoke a second glance after a while. There's a lot of suffering here for sure and very little that one person can do. A dollar here, a dollar there, maybe that helps a bit, but the overall feeling is one of powerlessness, and slowly you become hardened to it.

Today, though, I noticed this sign in the window of Lindy's Diner, and that numbness thawed just a little bit. No, Lindy's isn't going to solve the problems of homelessness and hunger. And one single meal on one single day isn't "enough." But it is something, a reminder that hardness isn't the answer, that compassion is. And that even if we can never do enough, we can, and should, still try.

The Daily Word in plane crashes, Lance Armstrong and Tent City 2

The Daily Word

It’s Wednesday, Februrary 4th.

And the growing number of dash cams in Taiwan means you can watch terrifying footage of a plane crash.

And everyone’s friendly in Albuquerque!

Except for this (alleged) murderer.

But we’re working on our homelessness problem! By kicking people out of the parks and making them leave their make-shift shelters.

Thanks to this map, it’s easier than ever to find your nearest neighborhood goat.
