If someone walks by a homeless person and has the following thoughts:

1) my life is better - (a value judgement which dehumanizes the homeless person )

2) and then thinks that they are not homeless because they are a better person

then I would very humbly suggest that someone should say this to that person after having read their thoughts:

"there but for the grace of God ..."

And let me now retract the homeless example and use a better one:

If we know someone is suffering horribly, be they homeless or otherwise, let us be humble and not blame the victim and remember how lucky we might be.

I am sorry for this - I am now gonna go out and find a homeless person and ask he/she for some therapy :-)
