i sorta started but then just kept going

I remember one time when i was backpacking,
i had ran out of money and my bank card was missing, i have no credit card (death on plastic) and i was just thinking to myself...where can i sleep?  How will i eat?
I was going to go to the nearest school and see if i could give some English lessons for a few bucks...
Then my friend contacted me and said to go set up a bank account and he will put 2000 in it for me to live.  I was so lucky...:) Good friends like him are hard to find!

But when i worked at the restaurant i saw how many poor people could use the food that we throw out...so thats why i used to work at the homeless shelter around 7 am on saturday mornings so i could help them cook breakfast and feed the many who would come in and eat.  I would look at some of them who hadnt eaten for days!  They were so greatful for bakebeans and toast.  The shelter really tried to bless them by providing bacon and eggs.  It was one of the best feelings in the world!  BUt i still feel the brokeness....knowing that some of these men who are homeless are there because its not their fault.  One was in the internal affairs for the police department and a dirty cop shot him twice.  Something then happened to his family and he wonders the streets a drunk trying to find peace for allowing his family to get involved in that crap!  

In china i see the homeless eat anything.  Dirty and on the ground!  So sad!   So when i buy them food, there are some in my neighbourhood who simply dont eat unless its on the ground so i drop it on the ground to feed them.  They pick it up and munch at it like nothing else.    WHY THEM.....WHY DO WE HAVE BMWS IN SHANGHAI AND PEOPLE WHO CANT AFFORD A BOWL OF RICE LIVING 10 HOURS AWAY....
