Letter of the Day: Shelter from the cold

  • (The Press Democrat)

Shelter from the cold

EDITOR: How can we allow even one of our fellow citizens to shiver outside in temperatures 13 degrees below freezing? There are countless heated spaces sitting empty all night — schools, churches, veterans buildings, university halls and more. Surely the cost of heating them could be found in government coffers, or through private donations.

As I sit here writing, cold even with the heat on, I cannot imagine unfortunate men, women and even children huddling under bridges or in doorways. Everywhere I look, and from all sides, comes the cacophony of Christmas. Surely, whatever our beliefs, we cannot turn our backs on these suffering people.
