squatter camp(out): of awareness and action

Awareness is a seductive drug. It is powerful in the right hands but completely worthless in practical terms.

Awareness cannot cure, help, or comfort. Awareness does not win wars or topple evil. It does not do... It simply is...

On the same token, awareness can rouse the warriors to charge up a hill to fight for justice. Awareness can inspire greatness in medicine and art. Awareness can open eyes and hearts and the floodgates of heaven.

So what if I offered you some awareness...? What if I invited you to live like the world's poor for one night...? What if I invited you to a Squatter Camp(out)...?
