Re: “DNA to VA: go away

I assume that those who oppose this move have never struggled with a mental illness. This is based on all the negative, ignorant, and cruel remarks made regarding our Veterans that are seeking compassion and assistance. Perhaps people who oppose the move have managed to make it through their privileged lives with out a loved one being afflicted with addiction. I would also conclude, based on the heartless comments made about our Veterans, that those who oppose this move, have never lost a job or been plagued with a serious illness that led to a disability. It is beyond me how anyone can put the perceived worth of a neighborhood above the worth of a human being. I encourage anyone who does not support this move to take the time to get to know some Veterans who don't have a home. They are not "scary, crazy, violent, etc." as people are trying to label them. They are just people. They share many of your same values, have similar interests, hopes and dreams, and yes, some of your faults as well. Ignorance breeds fear. Educate yourself, and I don't mean by reading these articles, or books on homelessness. I mean go meet some Veterans who are homeless. Many comments made by folks who live in the Main Street area assert that if you don't live in the neighborhood, then you don't have a right to have an opinion on this issue. Well I say, if you haven't spent time with Veterans who are without a home, then you shouldn't get a say on this issue.
