Kindness on the street

NYC Officer Gives Boots to Homeless Man

Since we’ve written much recently about the importance of being with people on an individual basis, I want to include here this New York Times story about a New York City police officer’s act of kindness to a homeless man, captured by a tourist passing by.

Most of us, me included, fear caving in to compassion to any given individual on the street, since, after all, the need out there is infinite and our bank accounts are not. That would seem even more true for a police officer, who would be in more direct contact every day.

Nevertheless this man acted. See the link above.
