  • Dear Editor,
    As the weather starts to get cold I find myself thinking about the times I had to sleep outside when I was homeless and my heart goes out to the ones in that situation now.
    As I understand there are people in El Dorado that are willing to open and run a homeless shelter but are being stonewalled by the city. I do not understand how thay can be so cold hearted. Do they not understand but for the grace of God it could be them or someone they love. Most of them go to church. Do they just not get it? Paul said if you have no love you have nothing. Jesus said when you do unto the least you have done it to Him. Why are they going to church in the first place? Is it just to hob nob with their friends or make business contacts. They should go play golf on Sunday and just skip church. All they look like are hypocrites. They think build it and they will come but the truth is that they are already here they are your sons and daughters and moms and dads from right here in El Dorado. A lot of them are vets. This town treats stray dogs better than the homeless. Everyone should e-mail them and let them know how you feel they work for us. And the ones that think that they are right what they should do tonight is go sleep in their back yards and think about the people that have to be outside. Maybe that would soften their heart.
