He dreams the dream of the proud...

Trump says homelessness hurting real estate prestige, will destroy cities

The homeless are living in "our best highways, our best streets, our best entrances to building," Trump said.

For the Invisibles:



"On the turning away
From the pale and downtrodden
And the words they say
Which we won't understand

"Don't accept that what's happening
Is just a case of others' suffering
Or you'll find that you're joining in
The turning away"

It's a sin that somehow
Light is changing to shadow
And casting it's shroud
Over all we have known

Unaware how the ranks have grown
Driven on by a heart of stone
We could find that we're all alone
In the dream of the proud

On the wings of the night
As the daytime is stirring
Where the speechless unite
In a silent accord

Using words you will find are strange
And mesmerized as they light the flame
Feel the new wind of change
On the wings of the night

No more turning away
From the weak and the weary
No more turning away
From the coldness inside

Just a world that we all must share
It's not enough just to stand and stare
Is it only a dream that there'll be
No more turning away?

Is it only a dream that there'll be no more turning away...?

sorrowfully,
Bright

2. My choir sang this a few seasons ago.

I donít think there was a dry eye on the risers or in the audience. We volunteer with the homeless, the incarcerated, and those who have been homeless or incarcerated, among others, and we do not turn away.

3. Thank you.

I can do little, but I never pretend I do not see them.

Even if a nod is all I can do, it's a way of acknowledging they are real, they are here, they are people.

wistfully,
Bright
