Nothing to Smile About

Day 306Day 306 (November 3, 2014) – New York, NY

I’m getting tired of these scenes, but they are every where if you are not afraid to look. I’m thinking about the mid-term elections and how decisions that politicians make impact so many people. Maybe we’ll continue cutting funds to homeless shelters. Maybe we’ll keep on ignoring income inequality and the decline in wages.  Just maybe we’ll keep on going about our business as if nothing was wrong with this city….this great country. Maybe politics won’t get in the way of progress. And maybe we’ll find compassion again. Hell…maybe we won’t be ashamed to look in the mirror and actually face our demons….our truths….or faults. Maybe one day this scene will be different. Maybe I’ll be able to smile again and walk the streets as if nothing is wrong…..maybe.
