Apples

My excuse for never helping the beggar at the intersection of I-45 and Scott is that I don't have cash.
My excuse for not getting my windshield wiped by the homeless at the intersection of West Bellfort  and HW-59 is that I don't have cash.

So here's the reaction
Apples
A bag of apples that sit in my car during these wintry cold months,
when a persons asks for money for food and I don't have cash,
I offer they apple, if they accept I roll down and give it to them.
Now one friend has told me that these people don't want food they just want money for drugs
and that I can get stoned with my apple but I don't know that,
so I offer what I have a prayer and today an apple.

Your voice: One purse

There is more happening here than 10 American missionaries in jail. I guess I came to remind myself of that. No one deserves to die in silence, and no one's struggle to live should go unnoticed as well. ---Anderson Cooper
                                                                                  


I want my voice to join his, people in this much pain shouldn't have to suffer in silence.have to struggle so. We are three days away from the one month anniversary of the earthquake and while our TV screens no longer remind us of their tragedy, their pain remains.



While some of us have gotten tired, others are finding innovative ways to give. Mudiwa: Haiti  (pictures shown)is a creation of a friend, who is using her unique talent of making purses to raise money for the Haitian people.
