I've been asked to do video of myself and have had the darnedest time of it! A weekend ago I sat myself down and recorded myself multiple times – and after ‘take 63' I deleted and said screw it … I'll do it when I have something to say.
Well, today I had something to say. FYI – this is raw and unedited.
In a nutshell:
You just don't know what kind of effect you have on people. Recently I was stunned by someone's comment about not wanting to be around the homeless people – Those People. I'm not talking about walking the streets and hanging out with the homeless. In our area we have a mission house that owns an old hotel. It's used to house homeless individuals and families. In return for housing, board, etc. these people are taught skills in cooking, serving, catering, presenting. Local business groups meet there because the food is good and the service is excellent. This is the place that the person was talking about. “Do you know who goes there?” she asked.
My reaction is in the video.
It doesn't take much to ensure that another human being is given a bit of dignity.
Sometimes, all you need to do is listen.
