I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don’t notice it. People think pleasing God is all God cares about. But any fool living in the world can see it always trying to please us back.

The problem with homelessness in this city (and most societies) is that we as a human race have seemingly forgotten that we are just that; a human race. We begin to see people as literal objects, and walk past them with little to no regard. Almost as if we are walking past a trash can, or stopping to tie our shoe. Yet if we take a second to merely look a little to the left we will see that maybe the person next to us isn’t as fortunate and maybe we should all have a little more compassion and concern for the world that doesn’t revolve around us.
