It is a difficult world to live in at the moment because of all the hate and selfishness that reside within our communities. People have stopped looking out for people, and the lack of compassion is breathtakingly evident. But what about those who care and try to help others the best they can? They are often overlooked, dismissed and disregarded by the very people who need help, support, and somewhere to turn when the going gets so out of kilter that suicide becomes a viable option for them.
It is the storm that everyone can see happening but isn't inclined to seek the right sort of shelter for their well-being needs. Those needs are complex and numerous and trouble the mind, body and soul. So a wind-cheater, umbrella, blanket, or coat is not enough to stem the pending doom. What needs to happen is something altogether different. A new approach to tackle this age-old problem where ordinary people are left to fend for themselves in the best way they know how to. Many people don't experience the kind of kindness that builds bridges to reach the needy and the weak.
