in the case of the homeless at least, often it is a gratitude for what the pride is based on. They definitely are intertwined. It implies that we are grateful that we aren't living as they do, when in fact, many of the one's I've talked to are grateful that they aren't living like us and look at homefull people saying "there but for..."
Now it does change its implication in other situations, such as when we pass someone in a car wreck who had his face pushed through the window.
