While reading the Sept. 25 newspaper, I couldn’t help but be amazed and saddened at the disparity in our society’s socioeconomic classes.
In Business, a headline read $60M penthouse sale breaks Dade record. Another story quotes the pope saying, “We can find no social or moral justification, no justification whatsoever for lack of housing” and “The Son of God came into this world as a homeless person. The Son of God knew what it was to start a life without a roof over his head.”
Wow, if this juxtaposition doesn’t stir something in some people, then we are all numb to social injustice.
