    Sad but helpful

    After reading this book I went to the blog sight and found out that Mr. Cady passed away in 2012. What a great heart this guy had...too bad there are not more folks, like him, that really SEE all humanity as true human beings.

    How to live homeless - not helpless

    Eye opening and heart breaking....change in our laws and policies begin by examining the harsh reality of how our nation's homeless are discriminated against. This is America- the land of the free and impoverished! The homeless need our help. This could happen to any of us. Jesus says that they will know we are Christians by our love. It time for all of us to open our hearts and become active in this cause.
