Sunday evening (27 Nov '11) we happened to get hooked into watching 60 Minutes and being deeply moved by the segment that began the program. One of the regulars on the program, Scott Pelley, did a tremendous job of interviewing homeless families in Florida.
When you've the time, click on the underlined 60 Minutes above and view what we saw. Every family member was worth listening to, but one 15yo really caught my attention, Arielle Metzger. When you watch the program, watch her eyes (frankly, pay attention to everyone's eyes in this clip...even their whole faces). Be alert to two sentences she speaks:
Concerning being homeless and making the most of it she said, "It's only life. You do what you need to do. Right?"
When Scott commends her for her sinceretiy and maturity (her younger brother, Austin, has a cute brotherly quip here...) she, with fire in her eyes that are connected to her young soul states: "I plan to be a child defense lawyer." Amazing how commited she is to her schoolwork and getting an education...with circumstances of her, her father and brother.
So when you look at these families...
...who and what do you see?
