Thoughts and ideas
It’s been apparent that homelessness has been a big problem in Hawaii for a while now. Homeless rates in Hawaii are double that of any other state in America — about 18 in 10,000 people that live here are homeless.
The tropical climate here is the ideal living conditions for a homeless person because they don’t have to face the harsh elements of the changing seasons that they would have on the mainland, making this a “hobo’s paradise.”
However, this isn’t the only reason why there are so many homeless people here.
Hawaii is an extremely expensive place to call home due to the lack of available housing. The prices of houses and rent go up because of supply and demand, causing many people to struggle every day to live here, which turns people with homes into homeless people.
By making more available housing, the cost of living here will be more affordable for the less fortunate and will help lower the rates of homelessness. Also, by making emergency housing and rehabilitation centers for substance-abusers available to the homeless can help lead them in the right direction and get them back on their feet.
While homelessness seems like an impossible problem to fix, there are things that can be done to help counter the problem. The expenses of living here make it very easy for a working person to struggle to stay on their feet. By making more available housing, the burdens will lighten and help prevent people from becoming homeless.
The emergency housing and rehabilitation centers can help many already homeless people become contributing members of society.
‘Making excuses for
War is state sanctioned murder and is inhumane by definition. This comes when both sides are willing to deny the humanity of the other.
Both Israel and the Arabs are guilty here. Explain to me how 2,000-pound bombs can be used in a surgical strike.
What did Hamas think would happen when they acted like World War II Nazis?
This war won’t solve anything. Israel will never be able to silence and end Hamas with force alone. Nearly 60 years after the Six-Day War, they’re still at it.
This is just killing that leads to more killing. How can you keep doing the same thing and expect a different result?
Both sides cry about their suffering, yet inflict it on others without shame.
Both are equally guilty. Supporting either side is just making excuses for their inhumanity.
