Washington DC has never been a good place for the homeless.
Mitch Snyder tried to change things I think, but the battle
destroyed him.

Now they are saying the shelter might be closed.

While so many buildings sit abandoned and falling apart,
they let the homeless freeze on the streets.

Yes, DC seems heartless when it comes to the homeless. Many
of the homeless are mental patients released from the
facility there with no sufficient follow up.

It's overwheming.

DC should be the standard others can follow, yet it seems to
be one of the worst cities for the homeless.

Maybe because they don't have the opportunity to vote
because of circumstances?

We need help here, before it gets worse.
