En el recorrido de Oregón, cuando llegamos al lugar donde íbamos a hacer un taller con nuestros hermanos y hermanas pobres. Cuando nos estacionamos en un parqueo de una tienda, vi a un joven caminando despacio, se veía cansado y la cara de angustia, arrastrando una cobija. Tenía una muleta y se miraba como si nada le importara. Conversé unos minutos para invitarlo a la reunión de los sabios de pobreza. Sin ganas dijo “ok, llegaré en unos minutos”. Siguió su camino, enseguida salió una persona muy molesta de la tienda. Declaró “¿Están solicitando? ¡Vayan a otro sitio!”. El joven siguió caminando sin ganas y con la cabeza agachada. Dentro unos momentos le observé pasar con un café y con su soledad. Me recordé de cuando yo también andaba sin ganas, caminando en las calles de SF, California. Pero eso no quiere decir que no podamos caminar con la cabeza alta. Siempre hay alguien que sí cree en nuestros valores, que si podemos caminar juntos.

On the Oregon tour, when we got to the place where we were going to do a workshop with our poor brothers and sisters. When we parked in a store parking lot, I saw a young man walking slowly, he looked tired and his face was anguished, dragging a blanket. He had a crutch and looked like nothing mattered to him. I chatted for a few minutes to invite him to the meeting of the poverty skolars. He reluctantly said "ok, I'll be there in a few minutes." He continued on his way, immediately a very annoyed person came out of the store. She stated, “Are you soliciting? Go somewhere else!" The young man continued walking reluctantly and with his head bowed. Within a few moments, I watched him pass by with a coffee and with his loneliness. I was reminded of when I too was reluctantly walking on the streets of SF, California. But that does not mean that we cannot walk with our heads held high. There is always someone who does believe in our values, that we can walk together.
