Last week I saw a lady quickly reach into the trash, grab something and start to eat it. I was shocked. Then panicked.
I was stopped at the light right at the corner of my office building. I wanted to jump out of my car and tell the lady to go to the coffee shop in our building and ask for a meal. To tell them I'm parking but I would be in to pay for her meal.
But she moved down the street too fast. There were cars behind me and the street was too narrow for me to pull over. By the time I turned around she was gone. I wish I could have helped her. The images of that lady eating out of the trash will haunt me for years.
When I see situations like this I often think: "There but by the grace of God go I."
