Introduction

Like the rest of the world, I find myself running from one activity to the next.  It’s hard to even find the “pause” button in my life, let alone press it.  Well, this blog is an opportunity to press the pause button.  It’s a space to think about and discuss issues that impact the members of our community who are most vulnerable and in greatest need.  These issues run the gamut, from the implications of the state budget to the impact of this especially cruel past winter on those who are alone and homeless.  I want to use this space to offer observations and raise questions that can be collectively contemplated and discussed.  There are no perfect responses to the issues raised in this blog.  Instead, we will strive for a dialogue that is authentic as we consider the situations that create hardships in the lives of others.  And while I have a particular point of view as Executive Director of Catholic Charities, I welcome all points of view as we travel this road together.  I hope you consider joining me.
