... I joined the youth group and youth leaders as they made sausage biscuits, collected clothes, and drove an hour away to a homeless "tent city" to hand them out and share the love of Christ with the people.  All the while, we met great people with intriguing stories, my favorite being "Wild Bill" who had a little shank knife, rolled his own cigarettes, and kept pretty quite as he sat with the radio playing Michael Jackson's "Man in the Mirror," which I found quite fitting.

Man In The Mirror [Remastered Version] by Michael Jackson on Grooveshark

"I'm Gonna Make A Change,
For Once In My Life
It's Gonna Feel Real Good,
Gonna Make A Difference
Gonna Make It Right . . .

As I, Turn Up The Collar On My
Favourite Winter Coat
This Wind Is Blowin' My Mind
I See The Kids In The Street,
With Not Enough To Eat
Who Am I, To Be Blind?
Pretending Not To See their Needs
A Summer's Disregard,
A Broken Bottle Top
And A One Man's Soul
They Follow Each Other On
The Wind Ya' Know
'Cause They Got Nowhere To Go
That's Why I Want You To Know

I'm Starting With The Man In The Mirror
I'm Asking Him To Change His Ways
And No Message Could Have Been Any Clearer
If You Wanna Make The World
A Better Place
Take A Look At Yourself, And
Then Make A Change

That's a good day if you ask me.
