If you saw a lady in front of Walmart, holding a cardboard sign that read, “Homeless, pregnant, help” what would you do??
That was the situation as we entered our local Walmart this morning on a quest to find Dad some new clothes. It bothered me at first, seeing the lady there and no one was helping her in any way, not talking to her, or leaving her any money.
As we were leaving, I said to my husband, “Someone should take her to a homeless shelter.” I wished we had the time to do it ourselves, and the room, but the car was full of purchases. His response was one I won’t repeat here, but as we drove away, we noticed she had a cell phone, and those aren’t cheap.
What am I to make of all this? It still bothers me, obviously, as IF I don’t have enough problems of my own, but we as a society, are getting so sick of being swindled, I think it has hardened our hearts.
I sure hope if she really needed help, she got it, even though it was plain to see, she had made many bad choices in her life.
But then, that is being kind of judgmental isn’t it. Or is it??
What would you do???
