Shoeing the Homeless

Docs in Burlington VT are doing their part to help the homeless in the local area by giving them quality footwear.  Why shoes? Because “The mission of the national ‘Our Hearts to Your Soles’ program is to provide less fortunate people around the country with shoes and free foot exams with the belief that proper foot health is an essential part of everyday life.” Proper foot health is an essential part of everyday life…  What life, pray tell, is that?  The one not involving a job, or the one not involving a home?  Also, how about feeding them while your at it.  Because food is kind of an essential part of everyday life.  And maybe a coat too, cuz it’s VERMONT after all and probably freezing.  Being alive is also an essential part of everyday life.  Sheesh….  But seriously, that’s really a cool thing to do.  Good on you guys.

    Give them a break. Everyone knows that first you start with the Shoeless Homeless then work up to the Shoe equiped Homeless…..Priorities, OK? But like you said, Good on OHTYS, more people should at least do something for other people – Give “Green” a rest and help more flesh type colors.
