Oh, it’s very real. It’s all around us. It’s everywhere you may look. It’s on your street, in your community, and certainly in your city. It’s quiet. It’s alone. It’s simple. It’s need. And… it needs you! There is need everywhere. People who need. Animals who need. Families who need. Communities who need. The list is long. It’s very long. Too long not to notice. Especially with the holidays and cold weather surrounding us, need seems to be more needing now.
