Homeless in America

This is pretty sobering stuff....from Chuck Warnock....

"I have visited countries in Asia where whole families live in barns, or chicken coops, or cardboard boxes. I have traveled in Mexico, and visited border towns, and tourist havens. I rode through Mexico City where 26-million people eke out a living amid both splendor and poverty. We expect to see grinding poverty, hunger, and homelessness in the two-thirds world. But, in America? In the most properous country in the world? This is the new America for some."

"This is the sin of a society where executives of a failed global enterprise take home millions in “bonus” earnings, passing the victims of corporate greed and criminality in their BMWs and Mercedes-Benzs. This is America. This cannot, must not, should not continue to be the only America."

Thanks for the quote Mark - the sentiment couldn't be more relevant or necessary.

(Pretty sure the guy's name is "Chuck" Warnock, rather than "Church") :)

Thanks for the link, Mark. Actually, I've spelled my name Church many times myself. -Chuck
