May 2,2000
Groups,et al:
I have emailed the President,the vice president,I have wrote to congress and
every political candidate that aspired to office either locally our state
wise,as well as nationally.
I ran with San Francisco,s Plan to end homelessness and force fed it to
politicians and others ...I believe that we have to become much more out
spoken and request either a "Moratorium Day For Homelessness" or ask the
next President to commit to ending this dilemma in this life time not our
childrens!
As advocates and activists if we sit on our thumbs and do naught then we are
as bad as the hate mongers and politicians whom mouth the words and never
follow up or help but only say it for a vote!
I for one am willing to do what ever the general majority of the homeless
advocates,and displaced persons want to do about this..but it is time I
agree to publicize the rants and needs of our brothers and sisters!
Respectfully yours,
A Brother In Strife And In Peace
