Blue Monday post.
We enjoyed our recent trip with the phamily to Las Vegas. But I never dreamed I would see homeless people roaming the streets there. It is truly sad. You can always tell a true homeless person but from those trying to scam people for drug or liquor money, One night, my hubby and I went to a grocery store off the strip to buy water. He lived there may years ago and Vegas is very easy to maneuver. We were returning from the store when we approached the red light. My eyes locked into the eyes of a homeless man. As long as I am alive I will never forget that look of sadness,hopelessness and despair. I never dreamed that homeless people would be so overwhelming in such a city. I am sad because of this problem. I know Denver is filled with many homeless especially veterans and young people. If you have some time please check out the city of Portland, Oregon. They are spending dollars to build affordable housing and help homeless folks have a new beginning. It is a project I wish all major cities would embrace.
I hope you will visit Sally and the Blue Crew. I am going to try to catch up last week and this week for Blue Monday so I hope to see you here soon. Thank you for stopping by, you mean a lot to me with your kind comments. Have a blue-ti-ful week.
