Street-born Kindness

Posted by
Viewfinder (Bradenton, FL, United States) on 15 June 2011 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

Not as edgy as the last two posts, but still a shot of the streets, N'awlins style... this caring woman offers words of consolation for a tired mule resting from its journey across the hot streets of the French Quarter with tourists in tow. Unfortunately, I don't think the crutches will help...

Still, kindness comes in all sorts of different ways and places, even "Among the People of the Streets" (and mules).

And so, as once so succinctly stated by a tiny little boy named Tim, I must again quote Dickens: "God bless us, every one!"

Kindness is something we seem to be seeing less and less these days. We must remember the words from Matther 25:40... ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ Well seen and captured Glenn! ;-)

charming - the inclusion of the crutches provided some sort of parallelism!
(Great depiction of: Be kind to animals!)
