We’ve all seen it. It’s often an uncomfortable situation. What do we typically do about it? We avoid it. Maybe if we don’t look or focus our attention on it, the problem will go away. Meanwhile, we think to ourselves, “Wow, I’m glad I’m not in their shoes.” What am I talking about? I’m talking about that one student in class who everyone knows never eats lunch, who hopes that no one notices. I’m talking about the family who often moves from place to place, who hopes the new landlord will show them some level of mercy. I’m talking about the mother with a crying child in the check-out line at the grocery store, who after all her items are rung up, realizes she cannot pay for her groceries and needs to have a few items removed from her bill. Meanwhile, we stand by, trying to be polite, doing our best not to make eye contact.
