I saw The Soloist the other day. Very interesting movie. At the end a statistic was shown stating that there are 90,000 homeless people in the greater Los Angeles area. I wondered how many of them are children? A lot I would imagine.
We're all familiar with different ways we can help the homeless population. We must keep a vigilant eye however, over the children in our own lives. We can abandon them and still breathe the same air. Meeting their needs for food, clothing and shelter aren't enough. They need our emotional presence and availability, their whole lives through.
Our children may not look like this little girl on the outside, but let us not forget to keep a heart watch at what's on the inside.
