dc.description.abstractText from the first three paragraphs of "Harbor the Harborless/Shelter the Homeless"|We think of shelter as a basic requirement of life, but many people simply don't have a roof over their heads or a safe place to live. For many of us, the line between our homes and being homeless is a thin one that can disappear with the death of a spouse, the loss of a job or an illness. |Why not educate ourselves on the causes of homelessness? Then we can make a conscious effort to see each homeless person as a human being worthy of dignity and acknowledgement. In big cities we train ourselves to look away from those who make us uncomfortable. But eye contact and a "good morning" to someone who is homeless can make both of us feel a little more human.|We can look around our homes and be grateful for what we have. At the same time, we can clear the clutter from our homes and donate useable items for someone else's home. As with our clothing it's about simplifying our own lives and using what we have to benefit someone else.
