As winter approaches, let us reflect on the less fortunate. Although we as students have our own problems - living on our loan budget and trying to stretch our money to pay bills - let us remember that we are part of the privileged few who attend law school, we have a warm place to sleep at night, and most of us have family and friends who provide support.
We drive past the homeless everyday on our way to school even though we try to ignore them, they are hard to ignore. We do not want to consider that they may be hungry or cold. We do not want to think about the children who have been taken away from their parents and placed in foster homes. Many of these children and adults will not have the luxuries we take for granted: dinner with the family during the holidays.
As future advocates, we can make a difference! There are many ways we can contribute! We can get involved, and we can contribute. Here are upcoming events:
• National Lawyer’s Guild is passing out lunches to the homeless community – our community - on Sunday, November 22, 2015 at 12pm. We will meet at TJSL.
• Also, Delta Theta Phi will host their Drive for the Children at the Polinsky’s Children Center. The donation box and information will be at Bottega Americano at the end of this week.
Please join us in making a difference this holiday!
