Great column about the 9,432 (and counting) homeless in fab Las Vegas (“In a sobering effort to count our homeless, this man knows where to look”). The question is: What can we do about it? I think about the billions of dollars that were spent on political campaigns. I could do so much for the homeless with only $1 million of the billions that were spent.
I urge Nevada’s elite and wealthy to take a stand to better our state by giving their money to the betterment of humanity as a whole. Let’s build shelters and affordable housing, doing all we can to help our fellow men get back on their feet; it’s not a handout but an act of compassion. If I ever hit the lottery or come into a lot of money, eradicating homelessness is at the top of the list. For I only pass through this way once in life and I want to do all I can to make a positive impact on it.
