this time i need a revelation

Posted: January 4, 2009 in life, people

there are rare moments in life where you come face to face with something you had otherwise blocked out. 

a woman came up to me today and i nearly didn’t see her or hear her cry. she’s homeless, pregnant and scared. she’s come to glasgow with nothing. and what defeated her most was the way people don’t care. they don’t help. they don’t hear or see her. it was nothing spectacular, i haven’t changed her life, but maybe it was made better for that short while we spent in a tea room on buchanan street so that her physical needs could be met. 

spare a thought for all those who have been made homeless over this festive season. they have a face. and it’s scared.
