Doctors, lawyers, addicts, hookers, hobo's....
They've all got a story to tell, and you might be surprised when you hear it.
Image doesn't mean a thing.... Attitude means everything.
The lawyer driving the Mercedes could be suffering from depression, planning to commit suicide tomorrow while the hobo pushing the shopping cart has a positive attitude and is happy to be alive.
The beautiful, fit woman wearing designer clothes could be much uglier of a person than the toothless fat lady wearing sweats.
The dude covered in tattoos and piercings could have a heart of gold and rescues kittens while the clean cut guy may be a serial killer.
That popular, rich kid at school who seems to have it all could be abused by his alcoholic father and afraid to go home, while the poor kid who eats his lunch alone could have amazing, loving parents to go home to.
The drug addict could give someone the shirt off his back, while the drug free guy drives passed the single mother broke down on the side of the road.
The child of a single mother could have all the love he needs while the child of a two parent home is neglected.
That old saying, "You can't judge a book by it's cover" couldn't be more true.
*Food for thought*
