Maybe it's not a good idea to quit your job at a homeless shelter and drive home, insert Soderbergh's Che Part 2 into your DVD player and rewatch the final scene, where Che is fatally shot for his efforts to help the poor in Bolivia. And maybe it's not a good idea to watch the scene that happens just before, when a guard asks Che who he believes in if not in God. "Mankind," he answers.
Or maybe that's just what's needed. I'm not sure quite yet.
I did good work at the shelter. A coworker was spot on when she said this:
You sweet but you strong. You love the women, but at the same time you give the impression they better hope you left your other side at home.
And now the form of that work has come to an end. The poor we will always have with us, and other projects are in the queue. Stay tuned.
