And I have no qualms telling you, that is the wrong choice, and you have been brainwashed by this destructive, exploitative system.”
The fact that homeless people do not have housing is a wrong done against them, not a sign they did something wrong. To then try and ban them from public spaces and existing in public (including doing things we all have to do, like sleep or eat), is yet another grievous wrong.
An attack on homeless people is not “protecting the community”, it is an attack on the community. Homeless people aren’t my enemy, those who would ban them from things like sleeping in public are my enemy.”
I was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer on November 4, 2015. As I was recovering from a mastectomy, going through chemotherapy and radiation, my partner and our kettlebells workout group gave me a key with the word "strong." I have treasured this act of kindness and support throughout the year. It has truly helped me on this journey as I have found that I'm stronger than I ever thought I could be, and I know that I can face cancer with strength, love, and courage.”
