Homeless in Spokane

As you go along your normal day, the morning ritual of getting ready for work, or just getting ready for your day, do you look around yourself and count your blessings? 

Do you have: 

A house/apartment
Clothing
Dishes to eat out of
Food for those dishes
A refrigerator and stove
Bed with blankets and sheets and pillows
Chair or couch

And many of you have much, much more than that.  Imagine putting all your possessions in something else you will live in – say a car.  Imagine further – what if you didn't have a car?  Imagine putting all that stuff in a large box (if you are lucky) or under a bridge.

Read the article:  http://www.spokesman.com/stories/2009/feb/05/lifeline-on-the-chopping-block/ at the Spokesman, about homeless people.

I know – you won't really read it.  You'll pass over it because it doesn't really affect you.  You aren't homelss and you "never" will be homeless. 

However, I think there is a very, very fine line between me walking with Lee Ann Winters and me having my own apartment.
