Where’s the compassion?

What happened to the compassion for others in this country of ours?

I was in line at the grocery store. A lady with three little kids had grocery shopped and was being checked out. She presented a food stamp card. Ahead of me was a man who looked like he had never missed a meal; he waited until she left and then ranted about freeloaders, leeches, lazy no-goods. I thought I was listening to Fox News.

So you have a steady job. Think about one day you might not have that steady income. You wonder how you are going to feed your children. It could happen to you.

Don’t criticize. You may walk in her shoes sooner than you think.
