Thank you for joining the discussion and clarifying the important point that 'thinking positive' obviously is not a quick fix for a homeless person or refuge. I agree with you.

In the first sentence of the third paragraph I say, "It’s a thin line between being a Pollyanna and denying the harsh and cruel aspects of the world around us in a way that is slightly delusional and being a pragmatic optimist." This is an important caveat. Thank you for highlighting this important distinction. Christopher Bergland
