99 New: Tonight’s Lesson

“Never believe the first story. Wait for the second or third.”

This was the good lesson from tonight’s homeless outreach with Street Angels and it came from one of Street Angel’s founders, a person who has heard many stories, enough to know to wait for the second or third because the first version likely won’t pan out, people telling her what they thought she wanted to hear to give them a hot meal or a pair of socks not knowing at the beginning that they would get both regardless of their story because their story wasn’t the point, they were.
