‘So Rich So Poor’ – Length 06:17

Every Sunday St James Church in Sydney’s CBD serves lunch for the homeless.  Many of them sleep right in the heart of the Legal Precinct. The day we caught up with them it was bucketing down and reflected not too well on Australia’s wealthiest city.

“I can control my destiny, but not my fate. Destiny means there are opportunities to turn right or left, but fate is a one-way street. I believe we all have the choice as to whether we fulfil our destiny, but our fate is sealed” 

– Paulo Coelho – Brazilian Novelist
