I was in Montreal, attending the Jazz Festival with friends. One friend invited his childhood friend to join us, as his treat. This man, I initially saw, as struggling through life due to a lack of financial security. We were walking on the streets of Montreal when we passed homeless people, without pause he reached into his pocket and put $5 into a cup. Knowing he had limited resources, I enquired and he gave me a lesson I will never forget. He told me that I was one tragedy away from being there myself who was I to judge. He did not see them as lacking anything, they were there providing him the opportunity to be a human being. Just sharing this with you brings a warmth to my chest as this interaction opened my heart and a lesson never to be forgotten.
