A Shameful Sight

Although this blog is about trashing the earth, we observed a sad scene today at Centennial Medical Center. We were in the family room while a member was undergoing open heart surgery. Many others were in the room, too. Two security guards came in and questioned a man who was there to visit his niece, who needs a liver transplant. The man, who was being interrogated, was African American, dressed in pants splatted with paint, drinking coffee and was sitting quietly alone. He had been on his way to work as a painter, when he got the call about his relative.

We were shocked by what we observed. He was there as a caring uncle, but was treated as a vagrant. We hope never to observe this again.
