The Stranger’s Hand to The Freezing Homeless Child 

Look deep inside and reflect on a stranger 

As a child faces his fate and we meet ours 


The Stranger’s Hand (free form poem) 

Look deep into his eyes
And you’ll never see what floats through your heart
-
Here is no rich man
No politician
No leader in industry
Just an average man
If even that
-
Yet why does this thing move our heart
This thing of some yesterday
Not a person at all
-
Dream dream dream
Look deep in its eyes
Why does it bother you
Why does it call to you
Why does he move you so
-
Dream dream dream
Dream of a starving man alone in the street
Dream of a stranger’s hand with something to eat
Dream of a man whose wife bore a son
-
Look deep into his eyes
This hand of destiny upon our heart
This piece of an important puzzle
This part of all else
-
Sleep now dear one
And thank you for this


To go with this, I have selected Leonard Cohen "The Stranger Song" 

Plus 

It takes about 40 muscles to smile, but only 4 to pull the trigger of the average rifle. But what does it take to perform an act of human kindness? OckTV wanted to find out. OckTV is Moe and "ET" Etayyim, brothers from Brooklyn, New York. Beside funny pranks, they look at society by performing "social experiments", like this one. What would Americans do if they saw a young  man freezing in the street. So they found a boy who is use to the cold (not really homeless), put him on a busy New York street and turned on the camera. What they captured is a truth and a warning.
Is this video the state we are in or artistry? "The Freezing Homeless Child! (Social Experiment)"
