Have you ever thought any of the following?

• Why doesn’t that homeless guy who’s always panhandling at the Airport Road exit ramp just get a job? It’s the best job market in half a century.

• I’m not giving this panhandler a dime, ’cause I know he’s just going to go buy booze.

• Why do these homeless people sleep in the doorways of businesses downtown when we have all these shelters around?

• How can the homeless guy who hangs out in front of our building downtown sleep all day long? Does he not want to contribute something to society?

• Maybe if they made better life choices, they wouldn’t be in this situation.

 

John Boyle has thought that too. Read his full opinion piece on The Citizen-Times that challenges many preconceived notions about homelessness.
