Bittersweet Green

Sweet Green
So lately, passing by Sweet Greens in the morning has not been so sweet.



The tables outside are being used by those unfortunately with no place to sleep. 



When I see the homeless people under the Sweet Green awning lying on the tables wrapped in ripped clothes and blankets trying to get some much needed sleep, it is completely heart breaking. 



At the same time, I wonder about the health and safety for people who come later to eat on those tables that only hours earlier were somebody’s bed for the night.



Not a good situation all around…and can never understand why a wealthy society such as ours can’t feed, cloth, and shelter ALL its citizens–so they don’t have to sleep at Sweet Greens anymore.
