A few nights ago I was on Lincoln Rd in South Beach FL taking in the sites and enjoying the vacation feeling. I watched a family as they walked by me. Mom was carrying an overtired babe in her arms, the other child was in the stroller and dad was hanging onto a half eaten pizza in a ‘doggy bag.’ Despite their own struggle and need to get home quickly before one the kids had a meltdown, mom noticed a homeless man as he passed them on the street. A quick converstation followed between husband and wife. A moment later, dad ran after the homeless guy to give him the pizza. It was a half a block before he caught him, as mom hung back and held the fort down. Observing this human spirit as I sat quietly alone with my dog by my side made me cry.  Always have hope!
