It's Unacceptable to Accept Homelessness

Wed, 04 Nov 2015
When confronted with community challenges we consider unacceptable, we often intervene in ways that actually accept the problem as a fact of life—as pointed out by columnist David Shapiro ("Accepting the unacceptable is a fact of life for Hawaii," Volcanic Ash, Star-Advertiser, Oct. 18). Homelessness is an example: Our leaders, the media and fellow community members here seem locked in a cycle of temporary solutions. Acceptance of homelessness as a way of life is reflected in our use of language and our responses to homelessness. Persons who are homeless are categorized as a class of people with multiple challenges resulting in not having a place to live—not something anyone would consider desirable.
