Would You Notice Your Mother If She Were Homeless?

This social experiment hit me hard.

New York Rescue Mission conducted an experiment to see just how invisible the homeless have become in our society. In it, they posed an essential question: would you recognize someone you love if they were homeless?

They took some volunteers, dressed them as "homeless" and had them sit along the sidewalk where their family members would pass by and filmed it. They asked their family members about their relationships...and then showed them the video.

The results speak for themselves. It's really moving.

This is worth thinking about. Worth considering.
