I think these words are pretty superficial which is, I think, the dilemma…it is easy for the middle class to put a positive spin on most of life's downside. We live in comfort after all.
But listening to a story on the radio about what street people in Washington are needing to do to prepare for the bleak norther winter.
One person who lives on the street says in response to the question "What do you need to do to do to prepare for winter?" and he answered "Find myself a place out of the wind where I can go to sleep and hope that I am not dead in the morning!"…..This is a damn sight more outrageous than "clearing out the old to make way for the new"
