“The wonder of restoration is exemplified through the visions of Ezekiel--an exiled Old Testament prophet, and realized throughout the life of Christ. In Jesus’ journeys, he routinely looked on people the religious leaders dismissed, and spoke life, leaving those who watched awestruck by the wonder of restoration. Such moments invite us to inhale and exhale divine restoration more fully.” --Margaret Feinberg, Wonderstruck

The worlds perception of homeless people has developed in a negative way. As children we are told not to get close or that homeless people are in the situation they are in because they are lazy, drug abusers, or alcoholics. This video shows exactly how people are viewing homeless people and would rather help a man that they believe earns a salary rather than someone who is struggling day by day. This needs to change.
