Today, we celebrated a wonderful person's birthday, our sister Sonja.
Sonja never plans or asks for anything for her birthday because she says she always ends up getting disappointed. This year, we wanted to change that.
We didn't tell her that we were celebrating, just to hurry and come over. When they arrived, we let them wash and then we shared a meal together with a sweet treat, a card and a small gift. Sonja was so touched, she said she was speechless.
On Skid Row, there is so much focus on the homeless to the point that sometimes with these groups Sonja says she "feels like an animal at the zoo". People don't see her, they just see the hundreds of faceless homeless. We need to stop generalizing and see each person and each story. Let's come together and make #life4homeless.
