I am guilty! I am instantly judgmental of homeless people. I instantly put myself somehow above them. I don’t trust them. I believe it is their fault that they are homeless. I fight within myself each time I do this. I am hopeful that publicly admitting this will help me change from within. But truly I have no idea how to change. It is easy to point a finger at the security guards, or police when they mistreat a homeless person. But how can I address these same actions within my own heart?

Old guy. Ex Democrat. Believer in karma. I’ll get mine! You’ll get yours!
