The Have Nots

I want for nothing. I am blessed to have an education and a good job. My husband has the same. I need not look far to see the faces of those whose future is unknown. They come to school cold, hungry, tired, and dirty. Many are being raised by young adults who think of themselves first. Their children are burdens or possessions.
Forget what their parents do or don't do. Think of these innocent children. Consider what you can do to make their lives better. They need more than things. Can you give them an hour a week to be a mentor? Thirty minutes a week to read to them? Have you time to be a Girl Scout Leader or Den Parent? They need tutors, foster parents, and CASA volunteers. Legitimate charities will accept money or your time.
During this season of giving remember all you have, and what they don't.
