Doing a google search for a B word connected in some capacity to homelessness I came up with this list:
Befriend, that's a tough one. I've not befriended a homeless person. I try to be kind and hope we all do. Not just with our donations here on Bridge and Beyond, but with our smiles or words when we come across a homeless person in our day to day.
Begging....well that was my previous B post.
Bench, makes me think of people sleeping in a park on a bench, or a bench in a town square. Certainly something to explore in more detail.
Blanket, that goes along with Afghan I think for us here on Bridge and Beyond.
Booze. We've talked about that. Believe in part on the begging post. Some folks indicate they won't give money because they don't want the homeless to buy booze with it. I can't say I share that opinion. If I were sleeping out in the elements, and drinking booze made me feel better..........even though temporarily ....it's hard to say I might not choose that if I had the opportunity.
Bridge..........well that word certainly seems appropriate to us here on Bridge and Beyond.
Broke........financial so perhaps, but also physically and mentally could come into play and something worth a follow up post.
Broken........lots to say here. But, will explore it in it's own post. The short version is....The System is Broken, in my opinion.
AND what of the picture? Me playing mini golf on a week with my lady friends about 6 weeks ago. We were playing at Pirates Cove...perhaps the gentleman I'm sharing the shade with was Barnacle Bill? How's that for a stretch to get a B?
**The counts on our progress bars are current. Percentages are current. All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated. The Power of One is awesome, and when we work together The Power of One becomes The Power of Many.
