Homeless Woman Arrested for Sending Son to School

It's a hard land, that's for sure. We live in a land where billions are spent to wage war while people starve in the streets, die of AIDS, die of cancer. Where are our priorities? Where are our hearts?
When you follow the link below, you find a story on The Stir website about a homeless woman arrested for sending her son to school. Why? If she's homeless, then she doesn't live in their school district, and she is liable for the cost of education that was spent on her child, who is 6 six years old. That amount, the school district claims, is over $15, 000, which makes it first degree larceny.
What cold, heartless people are these? Do they sleep well at night, having put a stop to this great crime? Do they feel like 'good citizens' protecting themselves, or are they just simply selfish beyond belief? Are they afraid of something? I'll leave it for you to decide. But first, let me leave you with a little story about my Grandpa.
Grandpa never passed a beggar without trying to help, though he was a poor man himself. As a boy, I saw him give little handouts on the street, and if he happened across someone hungry near to his home, he took them home and fed them himself. Sometimes a hungry person would knock on the back door, having heard of him. "You sure are good," I said to him as a boy, my heart swelling with pride. "No," he said, "I am incredibly fearful. One of them might be Jesus come back, and I am afraid to turn Him away." -Jobe
