    You are living your poverty, you are living your disabilities, but you are a human being with a mind and soul and body that are every bit as legitimate as entry tickets into the human race as any others'!

    I don't even know how to see that my unneeded personal items get into the hands of someone who needs them.  In New Mexico I knew; here in Maryland with all my affluent neighbors, I have no idea.

      But LoreleiHI don't be sorry for having health problems. Don't be sorry for being poor. Sometimes things don't work out. Sometimes we get sick or injured.

      We should not use either of those conditions as an excuse to mistreat others.

      When we encounter someone in trouble, its supposed to be an opportunity to give our best as a human, and this woman you encountered failed miserably.
