Helping Hands for Paris
Me and a group of St. Johns students hit the night with goody bags for the homeless and hungry. Though we are a miles away from our homeland, it is still important to help the people that need it the most. We walked the streets of Paris and I was shocked to se the amount of homeless people in Paris. When you think Paris, you think city of love, Eiffel Tower, shopping- not Homeless! It saddened me to see the women, men, children and dogs with hopelessness in their eyes. While walking around, I saw all types of shelters. One guy inhabited a phone booth, another with a cardboard box and another under a store awning. The hunger pains that haunt them day after day, night after night can be hushed for a little while with these bags of sandwiches, chocolate and water. So tonight the pain will cease for we are coming with great treats. G’night Paris.
