THe sight of a young man who is homeless is jarring when he is sitting in the San Diego Marina. He is surrounded by multi-million dollar boats some of which rent out for tens of thousands of dollars. No one stops to ask him to play his only real possession but when he does play it is an amazing sound that comes from his overly worn guitar. A young man nearby is complaining that his father would only buy him a BNW, not the Lotus that he wanted.

    Heartbreaking image and wonderful writing Thomas!! And when you hear that kind of whining it kind of makes you want to slap the little whiner upside the head, doesn’t it!!

  • It does no good.Life may do it sometime. For now we just have to remember that we are one people and we need to help each other.

    Such a poignant capture and description! It is a wake-up call to all of us who are not in this situation, to not take for granted the lives we are blessed with. And yet, we find something to complain about, sorry to say! Congrats for this will certainly be featured.

  • Thank you so much. This is a problem that should shame us all but we tend to be blind to it.

    A moment that says so much about our world and those that can only dream of what may be around them. I might of found it hard not to say to the young man complaining about his lack of car he wanted to be thankful for what he has.

  • It is tempting but it wouldn’t matter. Perhaps life will let him know, Tom.
