Hope Starts With a Kind Word-

November 12, 2014

I believe that instilling and restoring dignity and respect to those that are struggling in hard times plays a crucial role in their recovery and transformation back to a healthy place in life. This can begin with the simple acknowledgement of person.

If you’ve ever wondered what to say to a homeless person, you’ll appreciate Winston Ross’s article from Bridging the Opportunity Divide, September 10, 2014.

Here are five things to say that communicate compassion:

“ I don’t have money, but is there another way I can help you?”

Sometimes, what’s really needed is a pair of socks, a bus pass for the Metro, a snack or a bottle of water.

“Did you catch the game?”

We’re proud of our teams and asking about football is a good conversation starter this time of year.

“Good Morning.”

Saying hello helps homeless men and women feel less invisible to the busy world around them. People don’t often look a homeless person in the eye to talk, but try it and you’ll communicate respect.

“ How are you doing? Would you like to talk?”

Sometimes, they won’t want you to get personal, says Ross, but “If . . . the person is open to talking, this can lead to a real conversation — and maybe even provide a way for you to offer help.”

“I will keep you in my thoughts.”

Communicating concern and even praying for the person can give them great encouragement.
