JUST FOR A MOMENT by Karen Riches

Right now I'm at Burger King in Buffalo, New York, across from the Mental Health Association and their adult care area. There's a guard who's awesome. He talks gently and uses many techniques to calm folks when they're rambunctious.

I see laughing and talking. Some people are talking by themselves. Many are talking with each other but the main conversation probably isn't being followed. Some are very quiet in the corner eating. One person dialed someone and is talking into a cigarette pack.

The main thing is that they appear happy...maybe just for a moment. They're clothed, eating, and looking good.

What a blessing. I wish we could see more of this. Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
