Letter to the editor: Give a helping hand

Brrr, it's cold out there. In the 80s, homelessness began creeping around the edges of American life. Today, the homeless are part of every landscape. Precise numbers of the street people are nearly impossible to pin down. You see homeless men, women and children roaming the streets and parks, eating and hanging out there, sleeping there.

No one seems to know what to do and just walk on by, trying to avoid the hapless plight of the street people. Why worry though, you will never end up homeless, wrapped in a blanket, huddled in the cold with all your belongings, right?

Give a helping hand , share with the less fortunate, offer a little of your time and energy.
