The Walking Dead

There is a article in today’s LA Times about the deaths of the homeless on the streets of skid row.They say at least three deaths occur daily with little notice by the general public or our elected officials. When we die we are buried away from the living. The living dead of the mentally ill and those who for a myriad of reasons find themselves living on the streets and back alleys of America with no way out of the misery of their daily lives are on the same level of those who are dead and buried, and at some point in time forgotten from the memory of man.

The homeless become invisible in the minds of those who are productive members of society or most importantly willing and able to work for a living because that is what improves our individual financial situations.Those who for whatever reasons they choose to live on the streets of America are like the dead and buried we acknowledge them for a short period of time and then move on with our own personal lives. Society tends to look at the homeless with drug or mental issues like the walking dead. In our minds we no longer see them as people who for a variety of reasons have fallen through the cracks with no way out.

We should as a civilized society should not ignore what is in our faces when it comes to the walking dead that we see with our own eyes. Each one of us could wind up in the same situation. How would you expect to be treated.?

I am a 64year old male. I live in California. I continute to blog as a way to give my opinion on things that I read about. I am a baby boomer and I feel that because of the life I have experienced, and the times we are living through the need to be examined with a critical eye. I feel this is my purpose in life. Live,learn, and comment. I will attempt to make this happen.
