Housing the homeless

I never understood why we can’t take in those in need. It’s ‘dangerous’ to house a stranger they say. But I’d rather die trying to help someone in need than drive by seeing a homeless person outside in the cold. What is human life worth if we don’t treat it with dignity? The “greatest country in the world” is too greedy to feed its poor, heal the sick, and house the homeless. “It can’t be done” they say, but Cuba, a poor country that’s been hammered with an economic embargo which has caused the economy to completely stagnate since the 1960’s has managed to eradicate homelessness and maintain one of the best universal healthcare systems in the world. Shame!
