Today, in this litigious, politically correct, disposable society, we choose to lend a deaf ear to the cries of the homeless. Viewing them with indifference as outcasts, expendable, not worth our time, our efforts, our compassion, and our help. We rather choose an easy more popular cause, a cause that doesn’t create waves of controversy, rock the boat of indignation of the sources we want to impress to retain our positions in society.

We choose to build multimillion-dollar animal shelters while human beings are suffering out in the cold. Where is the logic? Do animals take precedence over humans? Are we going to reach the time where we euthanize the outcasts, the unwanted?

Our indifference, our ignorance, our fears are obfuscating and controlling our judgment. So we take the coward’s way out. We wash our hands. We cross the street and look the other way. At best we throw a few crumbs to ease our conscience. We are hypocrites for we never fully commit to a humane solution. We are to be pitied shunned and forgotten. Not the homeless.

Let’s remember do unto others as we wish to be done unto us.
