Subject: Fresno Homeless Christmas


I was in my typical hurry, to answer calls and pages when I ran across this
scene on the Mariposa Mall in front of the Fresno City Hall. I was struck
by the contrasts. You can see a small make-shift Christmas Tree complete
with lights, a wreath toping this humble symbol of the season that had
been set by the homeless. You also see a little tea pot hooked up to the
same electrical outlet as the tree. In addition the base of the very tall
and highly decorated Christmas Tree in front of the city hall can be seen
in the background. The simple little gesture by the homeless gave me
pause, it brought back to me the very humble beginnings for which we
celebrate Christmas.
