  •  Back in the mid-60s, my dad was that guy (0+ / 0-)

    stumbling down the street with a bottle under his coat. He stumbled into an Assembly of God Rescue Mission in Oakland and was changed.

    But, I **try** to always make eye contact with the homeless, and smile and wave, and help some, if asked.

    If it wasn't for a series of strangers, who I will never know, my dad would never have survived to make it back to our family. I don't know what percentage of their gifts went to food, and what to vodka. I don't care. They kept him alive.

    "You can never sink so low in life that you can't be a bad example for somebody." - my dad
