Homeless as ever

This week I read a tweet which said: ‘Maybe the 99% missed the lesson on how life is not fair and no one said it would be and how they still have more than most of the world’.

Yes!

In the middle of Occupy this-city and Occupy that-city, with people sleeping out in their $700 MEC tents and squatting in our public spaces – I can’t help but reflect on how aimless and self indulgent this whole thing has been.

How ridiculous it must be for the poorer nations to watch those of us who have so much – and yet we’re protesting because it’s still not enough!

I came into this as a potential supporter (and I certainly support the right to protest), but even I’m glad to see the eviction notices being handed out.

Enough is enough.

If even half of that energy had been focused into feeding and sheltering our homeless this winter – now that would be something I could get behind.

 

  1. Hey you, I never ever comment on these things but I just want to say way to go! I couldn’t agree more and I am so glad to finally read what I have been thinking all along.

    Hope Cowboy town’s treating you well!
