A tired girl wanders the street. A grungy man rifles through a Dumpster. A weary mom hauls her baby as she begs for food. Nameless and anymous to those around them, these people are avoided, consistently igred at best, cruelly mistreated at worst. But each has a name. Each has a past. And each life has meaning. Blinky lost his wife to cancer. Blinded by grief, he forsook his former life. Forgetting the past, he formed a bond with others who are homeless by choice. Pogo defended the woman he loved from an attacker and fled Mexico to avoid retribution. Chazz fought in a war and came home a hollow shell. They had retreated from society and met by chance on the stark streets. A children's book, given to them by a little girl, helps them retrieve, t only their lives, but the desire to make a difference for God's glory. In Michael Corneiller's thought-provoking vel, The Beggars' Gift, it takes all the King's men to seek a solution to the plague of destitution that is taking over Pimlico.
