…but I am thankful that I am not sleeping in my room, in a bed, staring at a ceiling fan. This morning is the start of a day of blog posts on the homeless. Those that are homeless do not always have a bed of their own, much less a room with a ceiling fan to stare at on a long cold night.
I will be writing on homelessness because today is December 21st, the first day of Winter, it is also National Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day. Here in San Antonio, we remember those of our own homeless with a service in Milam Park, which is in downtown San Antonio, Texas. The service starts at 6:30pm and will run an hour.
Perhaps in the next hour or two I will get a little sleep, then I wake up with the morning and will go to some local coffee shop. We all have images of what a homeless person is, later this morning I will paint a picture of homelessness that you may not see.
