In most homes in Panama the month of December is a month of excessives: excessive toys, excessive food, excessive alcohol, excessive parties. You know what I mean.
The thing is that beyond all those excesses, there is a population than stays in the dark with nothing but nothingness. For them food is scarce, no presents, no parties, no nothing. I’m referring to the people who happen to be poor. The are called “poor“, “have-nots” “little people”, “drug addicts”, “homeless”, “hobos”, “tramps”, and a lot of other derogatory terms.
This is not right. They are also the children of God and deserve to be treated as human beings. Let’s open up our hearts and stretch out our arms and touch as many of these persons as we can. Remember that when you give you also receive.
My wife and I ache for these people who have nothing but a cold and hard bench on a public park which they call home. Let us all make this “Wrong” a “Right” as 2015 creeps to a halt. Let’s make 2016 a better year and assist these needy children of God.
