Drifter kids rock

Posted on Mon, Jun 18, 2012 at 3:24 PM

Can you imagine if everyone took a chance to explore as much of Canada as they could without wasting away at a job they don't like and finding alternative ways to make money? If everyone stopped to talk and asked the person sitting there asking for money what roads they had travelled and what brought them to where they are right now? If the people that live in the city they came to see showed these "drifter kids" the hospitality that we are world renowned for instead of making myopic assumptions based on appearances and then whining about it? If we all had enough kindness and compassion to take one animal, our best friend, everywhere we went no matter the circumstances? Imagine if we all felt so liberated! Wouldn't this just be a sea of happy, well-adjusted, fulfilled and non-judgmental people? Have some respect, there are many ways to live your life. —Not Normally a Bitcher
