I see the Moses Lake City Council constantly passing restrictive laws against the homeless, but nobody passing laws to help the homeless. Itís selfish and unkind to treat people this cruelly. Many people laugh and mock the Catholic Church, but theyíre the only church feeding the homeless and giving personal hygiene products to the homeless in this city. As a city, we can and should do better by the homeless population. I was always taught that when a man is already on the ground you donít kick more dust in his face.
Itís kind of difficult for a city to be a great city when you neglect and abandon your homeless community. The city has enough money to build a homeless shelter. No human or animal should have to sleep outside in 20-below weather. So Iím calling on the City Council to do a better job toward the homeless. Stop passing all these unnecessary laws that hurt people who only need a helping hand and a little compassion.
