With some of the recent extremely cold temperatures, most of us were safe and warm, at home.

If not, you were probably going to be there soon. This may not seem like a big deal, but consider this - there are a lot of homeless people, right here in our area. By a lot, I mean filling up the shelters, for a warm place to sleep for the night, and maybe a quick meal.

Yes there are some people who choose to live this way, but I'm thinking of those people that didn't. Maybe they lost their jobs and fell on hard times. Situations that aren't their fault. This includes families having to live this way.

This is just a way to keep those who are less fortunate than us, in your mind and how fortunate we are, because this could happen to anyone, including me or you.
