Mayor Bloomberg says Plight of Homeless 11-year-old is 'just the way God works'

You should read Invisible Child, by Andrea Elliott. Read all five parts. When Politiker asked Mayor Bloomberg about the piece, he summed up the plight of 11-year-old Disani, one more than 21,0000 homeless children in New York City, "That's just the way God works."

This kid was dealt a bad hand. I donĂ¢€™t know quite why. That's just the way God works. Sometimes some of us are lucky and some of us are not," he said.

The way God works.
