Accommodating the needs of other people #WATWB

Breaking the self-nihilistic spiral of me, me, me, people are able to accomplish wonders. This month’s two examples of positive news as part of the We Are The World Blogfest prove that.

Building a literal village

Maybe it’s due to what I read (I tend to focus on good news rather than mainstream horror) but I see a trend emerging where homeless people are not looked down on any more but are supported with food, haircuts, clean clothes they can use for job interviews.

This Scottish cafe has been doing that and they have now taken a step further, building houses, or as they say, a community for those in need. I can only imagine that those given this opportunity will try to give the same back once they’re in the position to do so.

Stepping in when you see someone in need

However you don’t need a lot of resources, time, money, planning and commitment to make a difference. The other story I wanted to share is simple in it’s essence: it’s communication. But for some people, this is not that easy.

(For those of you without Facebook, here’s the screenshot #1 and continued at #2.)

Wish you all another month filled with good deeds!

  1. Thanks Miss Andi, for your support of out WATWB. I too, had a story about homelessness this time around. As for the high flying tale about Clara signing, it truly goes to show that actions do speak louder than words. Not only did these signs speak a language, they conveyed kindness. Well spotted.
