Ignored Potential: One thought in a busy world by Robert G Parent
Humid morning here in the other Manchester, the one in New Hampshire USA. I'm sitting here at a local grocery store in the cafe area. I see cars pass on a busy street of people going to work, shopping, home, or wherever. There are people in the grocery lines buying food for the day or maybe even lunch, passing each other with their carriages of groceries, talking to each other in the cafe, or just watching the local ABC affiliate on the TV in the cafe. However in an unknown corner ignore by many by choice or because they just have their own problems is a young man, probably in his twenties, head on the table sleeping, with bags behind him, a backpack and a blanket roll from sleeping somewhere else last night other then a home. What a waste of potential. No job, No family, No friends. There is something wrong in a society that ignores the potential of someone being able to have the opportunity to share their gift. We all have something to teach and something to learn in this Garden of Eden.
