A Helping Hand …

Every weekend, I encounter scenes like these:

They give out a large variety of items … fresh fruit, different kinds of breads, etc.  People of all ages come with plastic bags and fill them.  It’s a wonderful service.

I keep hearing that the economy has “turned the corner” and that things are improving, but when my tenants are constantly being laid off and/or losing their jobs, and scenes like these are prevalent in many pockets of the city, it’s difficult to wrap my arms around that optimistic viewpoint.  Onward and upward ………… Still, I choose to think the best, in people and in situations.
