LETTER:Make a home

The lonely homeless, shuffling along the street behind a shopping cart loaded with their worldly possessions, is our modern tragedy.

Nothing noble, heroic or redemptive can be interpreted from the sight.

The loss and pain it demonstrates is owned by the individual, the family and the community.

As Robert Frost said, “Home is the place where, when you go there, they have to take you in.”

There is no cure for this spectacle except to hug our children reverently and avoid estrangement diligently.
