Thread Name: Songs about the homeless
Subject: RE: Songs about the homeless
I had to interview a homeless, alcoholic young man at the Union Gospel Mission yesterday. I guess it was the first time I've ever exchanged more than a few words with a homeless person. He was clean and sober when I talked to him, and I liked him a lot. I wondered what will happen when he leaves the mission and goes back into the hard, cold world. Thinking about that almost made me cry.
We need to think when we sing these good songs. These are real people we're singing about.
