Somolia Part 2

Somolia Part 1

I was out in the cold and dark last night and a homeless fellow asked me for fifty cents for a cup of coffee. I told him, automatically, that all I had was plastic. I lied. I thought about that on the way home and felt a change.

  1. Plastic is derived from petroleum and probably not very good for the homeless fellow to drink and also rather bad for the environment.

  2. Great end to Lynda’s piece.

  3. I wasn’t sure if this was the follow-on from the other entry but it is another thought provoking piece. Thank you for joining in at this special time.

    • Hi, Julia. I took the theme of Somolia Part 1 to be the disparity between the haves and the have-nots in this world, so in Part 2, I shared a recent experience of mine along those lines. Cheers.

  5. I really like this as a continuation to Somalia. Very thought-provoking. I think people are sometimes reluctant to give to street people because they are suspicious of whether that money will be used for worthwhile purchases. Giving is a gift in itself.
