1. In a healthy society the first person that walked by him

Would have asked him "where is your coat young man, it's freezing out here?"

But we are not a healthy society...we are detached from people.

3. Wow!!! Absolutely shocking

Two hours and nobody helped or even asked him (even if he needed to be escorted to a shelter or help).

The empathy gap is out of control.

4. The homeless I met in New Orleans when I was there for a couple of months...

just wanted to be useful to someone, they wanted to have a purpose. One was trying to give a couple directions while desperately clutching a banana peel (I got him some better food). When I was leaving, I gave another my left over groceries. He said "now I have something to give my grandchildren" his first thought was of someone else.
We have favored money and efficiency over people. Sad. At least Scrooge learned better. We "we" learn?
