ABC Wednesday ~ U

U is for ~


Unicycle ~


About a month ago I took my first trip to New York City. It was a trip with my siblings who are spread out over the U.S. As in most "Big Cities", you can find "street performers" just about anywhere. 
We can across this young man in Central Park. Needless to say ... we were very impressed. Looking back and thinking ... how sad it is that someone this young is out on the street trying to earn a little money to help his family!  But I understand the concept all too well. We are more willing to give this young man a buck or 2 than an adult. There are many people out there who need help. We need to remember that we are only responsible for our reasons for helping. The person we give to is responsible for how they use our gift.

Talk about something I have NO talent for doing. Cool that you gave him a buck or two.

Very insightful and thoughtful post. I agree we need to be responsible to who we give, and they in turn, how they use the gift.

Great job and fine message. Our church has a real heart for the community and assists the homeless and needy more than above average. But as individuals I will give, as Wanda says , if I know where the money is going.
