Today I became a home owner in Portland, Oregon. It is a great privilege. One that I hope to never take for granted. I have a safe, comfortable and loving environment in which to live.
As in any city there are people here who are struggling and are unfortunately homeless. At a time of year when the temperatures drop dramatically I wonder how they must survive. Sadly, some don't. It makes me question the nature of our society. It's not a new concern, however, surely it is one that we can address.
In the meantime, like many people, I will contribute towards the food drive. At least people can have access to a decent meal.
As I celebrate my life moving on in a positive direction, I will remind myself that I am very, very fortunate.
Take care everyone.
