Pejorative

PHomelessness is uncharted territory for most of us. Sadly, it will come up in my memoir from a parent’s view. Pejorative words that inflict insult or destructive thinking about these people are better left unsaid. Mark your calendar and watch Dogtown Redemption on your local PBS station May 16th. Watch it with compassion – just because someone is homeless does not mean they are undesirable, damaged or inferior.

    You’re so right. I used to work with homeless people a lot as a crisis counselor, and the stories are often heartbreaking. Many people think that homeless people are just addicts, and though many are, they didn’t all start off that way. Thanks for posting about this.

    I always say everyone has a story. And those we are tempted to look down upon have the best stories yet!

    I have it scheduled to record. Thank you for the suggestion. This reminded of the saying, “Never look down on someone unless you are offering them a hand up.”

    Thanks everyone for visiting my blog and your comments. If you get a chance to watch the film, my son is one of the three homeless people featured.
