Ghosts Among Us

This doesn't exist to highlight the existence of the less fortunate or homeless, but our society's nature to pretend those without don't exist. No one person can save everyone, but when does our acceptance of such become our excuse for doing nothing more and more. How fast does a homeless person in the park or street disappear even if still there? How easily we think why this person deserves a hand, but that person does not? These ghosts of ours walk among us, yet never truly with us.

What do we do in a world so haunted? Simple. Stop pretending. Do something, anything. We can bring these ghosts among us back to life. They deserve such. No one is asked to give all to others, but when we can't give a person the simple nod of existence, who are we? We can do what we can, but never treat someone as less than. We’re better than that.
