Waiting in Line...



I passed my homeless friend again this morning. He had lots of company. Some people waiting for the bus. Most waiting in line to get on a list for a new condominium real estate offer in a tight housing market. People line up for days just to get their name on a list to either reserve an apartment or participate in a lottery. Most people hire others to sit in the line all day and night. It will be interesting to see how long the line gets. That is how scarce good housing deals are in Hawai'i. Competition is fierce. But you need money. And lots of it. The homeless man has been waiting in line here far longer than these newcomers. He has been waiting for years and should be first in line. But he isn't even last. He isn't even acknowledged as being in the line. And he will be waiting there again for a home as people come and go. Probably until he dies. Hopefully God will give him a home. Actually I know He will...
