Letter To The Editor

Pipestone Flyer

Dear Editor,

Homelessness has risen immensely. How many citizens take a brief moment out of their day to think about the less fortunate? Many people seem to think very negative thoughts towards the Homeless.

How can we justify these negative thoughts in our mind? In reality, we can’t and the reason I am stating this, we do not know how or why these people fell into homelessness.

If for one moment and time, maybe the Homeless have reason/reasons to judge the fortunate. The pendulum swings both ways.

Every human in this country has a voice and a story to be told, and every Homeless being has just as much right to be treated with Human Compassion.

I ask all citizens who care to take one day and give up the following: No Food, Hot Water, No Bathing, No Power, No Heat, No Blankets. Many Homeless people live without these things every day and much, much more.

Many Homeless people do not have shelter. Let’s not forget this.

There are 43,000 people in Edmonton AB that are homeless.

I sincerely say here all humans need a place to call Home. The need to be well in Health, have proper education, and a chance to be employed, but most of all, helping hands to lead all to a better life. Freedom Of Peace.

Let’s not forget about the youth and children that suffer. There is no just cause for a child to go Hungry. So, once again I ask you for one day, that your child or children go one day without food.

Then just maybe people will have a better perspective and understanding towards the less fortunate, the Homeless. Hopefully, by giving up a day of comfort in one’s life pattern, your way of thinking may change for the betterment of understanding.

There is a saying, “Never Say Never.” Homelessness can happen to anyone, and the price you pay is live to survive. For I should know that price for my family, and I became homeless and still remain as such, and I can admit we sincerely know and understand what being Homeless is all about.

For when my family and I can rise above being homeless, our gestures of Human Compassion will go forward to those in need.

But before I sign of my letter, I wish to address to the public the high cost housing brings homelessness to reality. The Greed of the Coin.

Stay Well One and All.


Ann LeBlanc
