  4. absolutely Claudia, but one still feels anguish and desolation
    when they have been forced to living on the streets.
    Forgotten. Forsaken.
    God sees, yes, he sees what we all do and what we fail to do.

  7. It's a short sharp compelling shock <3 Rene, you hit the nail on the head. Can't stand that were living like this and sending money all over the shop when we can't feed our own people.

  11. Yes, "the image of the ... God" abandoned, made poor, homeless. The God that begs for our compassion? The God we have forsaken? Powerful poem in three lines. Thanks!

  14. Ooh , very good photo and how true. Do we choose to cross the road or help? None of us can say we did not see once we've walked pass. Gripping.
