That was the title of an article in Fast Forward this week, but it wasn't that which caught my eye. The caption under the photo read,
"[...]says he'd like to see
Calgarians in expensive three-piece
suits and Italian shoes try
dumpster-living to survive."
Initially, this statement rubbed me the wrong way. I thought to myself,
"Are you suggesting that people in suits and fancy shoes don't work hard, or don't have an appreciation for what it takes to survive?"
Maybe it would do a lot of us middle-, upper-middle- and upper-class types some good to understand truly what it is like to live on the street, but I wonder if this suit-wearing, Italian-shoed Calgarian he speaks of perhaps worked very hard to get to where he is, and in doing so has found a way to 'survive' on his own terms?
