Last week as I took my children to eat dinner, I noticed a very sad sight. Across the way from where we ate, I noticed a woman dressed in a bright teal muumuu sleeping on the sidewalk. She had her shopping cart beside her and lay on the hard cement with nothing else. It used to be a rare sight to see right in the community where I live, but not anymore.
