What if you cooked for the homeless?

This Saturday, I witnessed an amazing humanitarian movement. A couple of friends had gathered in a small alley near a central square in Pireaus and cooked dinner for the homeless. One of their strict rules is that everybody shares the same food; the ones who cooked and the ones who come to receive.

I saw people of different ages and different countries approaching the cooking table. They had different personalities but I sensed a strong desire to participate. It was as if they knew that there is out there someone who cares. What saddened me was that there was an unused public building closed with homeless people outside. Why is it so difficult to give a roof to homeless people while you can?…
