Gut check.

Today, I visited one of the homeless shelters in our area.  The facility itself is gorgeous, newly constructed and welcoming.  I toured the dorms, and saw each bed with a few personal belongings under each.  Many were unmade and their things were strewn about.

Then, I saw the rooms designated for homeless veterans.  Each bed was perfectly made, and all their belongings were neatly lined up as if ready for inspection.

It kind of broke my heart.
