Lately I have seen an elderly woman who is walking all around town looking near homeless, in dirty clothes, her hair and face dirty, and she is dragging a type of suitcase behind her. I dropped my car off early this morning to be worked on and then scootered off to the bus stop so I could return home. While at this bus stop, I saw the woman walking on the sidewalk in my direction. She did not ask for money and said nothing. I had some extra money so I asked if I could give her a few dollars to make her day special. She smiled (first time I have ever seen her smile and her teeth look rotted) and said "yes." I gave her the money, she said thanks and went on her way. I'm going to put the name, address and phone number of the city social worker that I know down on paper and next time give her some money and that info. The way things happen, it could be one of us in her situation one day.
