    This was incredibly moving to listen to. We as humans really do need the recognition and compassion of our neighbors. Watching this, I realize how tied that sense of belonging is to having a safe place and shelter. The isolation that you describe is terrifying. This conversation really gave me a sense of how crucial it is just to recognize and respond to the basic human dignity in each other. Thank you so much for sharing.

      I think the word human dignity is so relevant here. My question now is, why are individuals who may not be impacted by homelessness so separated from offering this human connection and compassion to individuals living on the street? When I think of this I picture the scenario of – individual sitting on the sidewalk with person after person walking by. Ignoring. Is this a reflection of what these individuals feel inside? Or is the person walking by feeling a sense of helplessness thinking – this makes me uncomfortable and I don’t know what to do?
