When you wonder to yourself, what should I do, the next time you see someone in need, then take your inspiration and direction from what you read here…

I decided I would walk back to my Hotel that day, even though I had spent all day and most of my money shopping and my shoulders were aching from the weight of the bags.

I love that one song about “Give me your eyes for just one second, give me your eyes so I can see, everything that I’ve been missing, give me your love for humanity. Give me your arms for the broken hearted, the ones that are far beyond my reach. Give me your heart for ones forgotten, give me your eyes so I can see.” Not sure who it is by but that is what I want. To “see” people. Their worth, value, story, etc… Not sure how to get there. Will just keep praying and trying.

      Lil Bro
