“This country preaches a love and commitment to Democracy. But government officials and staff send government workers to come and demolish our houses and curbside communities. “Democracy!”, Officials cry.
But decisions hit us like the bombs the United States uses to destroy homes and communities in other countries. Pretending to care and be “heros” to refugees outside this country. Now they done created economic refugee camps in our own backyard. Democracy for some, inhumanity for many.
Literally it’s no democracy at all to the curbside community. City officials not showing our people compassion and human kindness worries me. Immigrants come to America for opportunity. But if you’re poor or struggling or had some bad luck or make mistakes or sick, then you get no opportunities. How can we all ride on the phrase “We the people”? “We the people” from Our Declaration of Independence means one nation, one community, one land, with one solution. Everyone comes as one. No matter if you are young,old, fat or skinny, housed or unhoused to assist one another. No matter what.
City officials need to act like public servants with humanity, not greedy developers and shady land grabbers. The city officials need to realize “Those Homeless” are humans too. Humans who need a step up, not a strike down. Pieces of public land for curbside communities to find sanctuary instead of being sold for condos is a new beginning of a solid solution. So that We the most vulnerable of The People can have a chance for Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
