It's now 11:40 am, Sunday, December 21, 2008. I took this picture from my room window. This is the bus stop I previously posted and she is the woman who I talked about. Thanks God, she is alive but she is still there.
Although there are some good shelters and villages for homless people in Portland but I don't think if just building such places would be enough. As Elaine said, some of these people are mentally ill so they are not able to make a proper decision where to stay or where to go. Why do some of them refuse to stay in shelters? There is always a reason behind everything. They should be guided (or even forced) to stay there if they refuse it. I'm curious to know if "American Democracy" does say if voters do not vote to pay tax for their support, these guys have to keep living like this in the streets and the only other option will be only few charities? Does "morality" play any role in your democracy?
* These are not offensive questions. I just want to learn more about the American democracy. Thanks.
