JAM'ing for Hope 2005

Walking around the streets we were looking for wanderers, little did we know how much we are about to learn from our quest to help and feed the homeless this Christmas Eve.
I was overwhelmed with emotion by their honesty and openness. Their faces brightened and their eyes gleamed when we offered them food and blanket. Some quickly pointed to us other homeless in the vicinity, some refused to take food or blanket because they have already received it from other volunteers; some asked for hugs!
It seems to me that "opportunities" for better life is excluding some who are unable to cope with the complex social systems, from having a life at all!
