First they came for the homeless

Let me see if I have this right. Grandma becomes homeless because she lives on a fixed income and the bills get to be to much. She reaches out for help, and the agencies that are supposed to help cannot. She tries to get into a shelter, but they are full. She ends up in a doorway. Now, instead of a grandmother, she is a drug addicted mentally disabled person that is a threat to all that is good and proper. That is what most who see her in that doorway are thinking.

Do you see the problem?

Let’s replace the ugliness.
