It's no wonder, Chelsea. Gracious you are for having the courage to understand what being hungry is actually all about. Merciful you are for giving someone else a hand from your compassion and generosity. I am one of those who became homeless and hungry and unemployed at a time in my life-not fun, not slick and so not cool.

It's easy to curse a problem and not deal with it than to turn it's light on. We humans are funny like that, I believe, especially when that problem isn't appealing to an average, yet superficial eye

It is fear of those who know nothing BETTER to do for someone in crisis than to condemn! Keep doing what your doing, Chelsea! God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit would never insult you, neither would I. By the way, I'm from Tuscaloosa, also.
