Help the unfortunate - joke

As I  walked down the busy footpath, knowing I was late for an important meeting, my eye fell upon one of those unfortunate, homeless vagabonds that are found in every city these days.

Wearing what can only be describes as rags, carrying every worldly possession in two plastic bags, my heart was touched by
this  persons condition.

Some people turned to stare. Others quickly looked away as if the sight would somehow contaminate them

Recalling  some long ago Sunday School admonition to "care for the sick, feed the hungry and clothe the naked," I was moved by some powerful inner urge to reach out to this unfortunate person.

Yes, where some people saw only rags, I saw a hidden beauty.

A small  voice inside my head called out,

"Reach  out, reach out!"

So I  did..........

I get out  of the hospital in about 3 months.
It would  be nice to get a card or maybe a visitor.
