Diseased.
Is that how homeless people are made to feel?
















David said that a friend stole $10,000 from him, he was recently divorced and that his favorite hobby is riding motorcycles although he no longer has one anymore.


David, a Vietnam vet, just asked for spare change. But the person he asked was "Leaflet," a regular contributor over at the Florida Progressive Coalition blog.

Leaflet offered to buy him some food at Taco Bell, and then the small favor turned into something much more significant.
Once he sat down in the passengers seat he apologized for being drunk and said that he promised me he wasn’t diseased or anything. I was shocked he had to assure me he wasn’t some kind of infectious vessel. Diseased – is that how homeless people are made to feel?
Leaflet wrote about her encounter to remind us all that a small act of humanity can give someone just enough hope to make it through the day or at least remind them what it'Leafkets like not to feel alienated, dangerous or “diseased.”
