I wanted to share this video of a homeless man in Houston with a talent for art. Many of you already know that I have powerful feelings about the City of Houston’s ban on feeding the homeless. Many of them are disabled vets. Many of them are just normal people, down on their luck. In the 4th largest city in the US, with a huge homeless problem, what can possibly be gained by forcing them all into feeding centers–by herding them. I think it’s a cosmetic treatment, to hide the homeless, instead of actually dealing with the issues facing them. But let’s let Ralph tell you this incredible story’
Thanks to Food Not Bombs and Houston Keep Food Sharing Free for bringing this video to my attention. I feel inspired.
