A volunteer’s Paris experience

A volunteer’s Paris experience

The last two days I have been in Paris … I didn’t climb the Eiffel Tower, I didn’t tour the Louvre, I didn’t take selfies with monuments, I didn’t visit any particular “well known tourist” spots… I toured the inhumanity that was happening around these “most talked about” spots… I was out with a small group of humans trying to warm young bodies and souls to make the bitter night that much more bearable. Handing young boys and men, some just 15/16yrs old, blankets, roll mats, hats, food, kind words and a warm a smile. Some would say they’re blessed to have me but I say I’m blessed to have meet them.
