Spokane Washington – ‘City wants downtown homeless camps out this week’
Tell me again about American Exceptionalism.
Tell me again how we are the ‘greatest Nation on Earth’.
The measure of a Nation…….the measure of a people is not how the the rich live…….but how the poor suffer.
With the recession – does YOUR city have an empty building?….Or 2?…..or 15?
The cost of renting/leasing a building, hiring security, providing 2 meals a day.
SHC can get their information AND start the process of providing ID’s.
The reward of knowing we have helped homeless from suffering indignities, cold and possible harm and actually improved their lives.
Have a problem?
Solve a problem.
Not subscribe to the ‘out of sight – out of mind’ solution.
