Yesterday I go and instead of a Bible holder, there's a young girl asking for money. My heart breaks. I know she's on drugs. I give her $2.
Today I go again and she's out there again. I can tell she's high but I can't put my finger on what exactly her poison is. I'm worried it's heroin. She doesn't aske for money this time, I think because she recognizes me.
I give her $1.11 and she's real grateful. I ask her how old she is and she tells me 20. She can't even focus her eyes on me. My heart breaks even more.
Are you the type that wouldn't give money to her, knowing she is using drugs?
I think the opposite. My dad was a heroin addict and my mom would not let him be around me and my sister. I know what heroine is and the withdrawals are painful. If I didn't give money to this girl, I wouldn't of been able to forgive myself.
The funny part is- where are those church-goers when she's there?
