Share others pain? Why? Why care?
    #1128818 - 12/10/02 02:14 PM (14 years, 21 hours ago)

  I was thinking just how bad I feel about seeing homeless guys, very poor people around me, also people feeling down, people with no motivations etc. It makes me feel kind of like them. And can't do anything. I feel so shamed when eat a sandwich while walking and someone is bagging for some food. I always try to help(as my ego lets me :smile:)
Few weeks ago I saw a very poor young guy... half down NAKED in a bus station!(i think he was beaten and took his pants an other clothes off) Everybody was looking at him in disgrace.. The poor kid was sitting on the ground and playing with the dust laughing. He lost all his shame, all ego gone.. He didn't care anymore. Also, it was pretty cold outside! How can we see such a thing and do nothing? I went home, took shoes, pants, pullover..and dressed the guy up. Said to him to take care.. and went on.
I kind of made myself a hero in this story. :smile:
This was anyway not about me, I was wondering why don't we care about eachother? Are we such big assholes? Are our egos so strong? When can we brake the ego's membraine and let all the people inside us?
Any ideas?

[stage set left cue song, Another Day in Paradise]

She calls out to the man on the street, "Sir, can you help me?
It's cold and I've nowhere to sleep. Is there somewhere you can tell me?"
He walks on, doesn't look back, he pretends he can't hear her
He starts to whistle as he crosses the street, seems embarassed to be there

Oh, think twice, it's just another day for you and me in paradise
Oh, think twice, it's just another day for you, you and me in paradise
Just think about it

She calls out to the man on the street, he can see she's been crying
She's got blisters on the soles of her feet, she can't walk, but she's trying

Oh, just think twice, it's just another day for you and me in paradise
Oh yes, think twice, it's just another day for you, you and me in paradise
Just think about it, uh-huh, just think about it

Oh Lord, is there nothing more anybody can do
Oh oh Lord, there must be something you can say

You can tell by the lines on her face, you can see that she's been there
Probably been moved on from everyplace, cause she didn't fit in there

Oh yes, think twice, it's just another day for you and me in paradise
Oh yes, think twice, it's just another day for you, you and me in paradise
Just think about it, uh-huh, just think about it

It's just another day for you and me in paradise
It's just another day for you and me in paradise
It's just another day for you and me in paradise
It's just another day for you and me in paradise
It's just another day for you and me, it's another day for you and me
It's another day for you and me in paradise
In paradise, oh, oh, oh, oh yeah

It's amazing what people will go out of their way to ignore.

So I have to enjoy the wonderfull life I have then :smile:

I don't think that's romantic dumlovesyou, I think it's compasssion. We need more people like you.

Here's another:

Bag Lady by Todd Rundgren

Like a fly batters itself against a window
Time and again and again it senselessly blunders
Up and down the length of West Broadway
the bag lady wanders

Fifty cents rent goes pretty far
when you live in a subway car
One stop's the same as another
Even Son of Sam sees her sleeping,
she's not worth the bother
Sorrow, do they ever want to cry

Do they see us pass by
Where do they come from (simple answers)
Do they come falling,
falling from the sky like rain
Crawling up the basement drain
Misfits and black sheep
Former brothers, friends of mothers

There is no yesterday, there is no tomorrow
There is only now and that hardly matters
No one cares about sad old ladies
with bags full of tatters

One day it gets a bit too cold
Maybe a little too wet, maybe a little too lonely
Lifelessly she lies amidst her bag world
But maybe she's only sleeping

We just had a protest for homeless rights............that wasn't sad,but you know what was? These folks weren't asking for homes or shelter or handouts.........they were only asking for the right to live under a tarp in the mud without LEO rousting them out in the middle of a wet cold Oregon winter night................And we drop 2.5million dollar"smart" bombs on Afghani goat herders? How far the mighty have fallen..................WR :frown:
