I won’t complain about the cold

With a deep freeze currently underway, people are rallying to support the homeless.  Churches are unlocking their doors to give the people access to warmth throughout the duration.  There are many hospitals that have added beds in the lobbies, so some people have the ability for warmth.  It is such an amazing thing they are trying to do, but it is only a temporary fix. There should be homes built that give the ability to come in from the cold and have a warm place to sleep, all year round.  It could be like a boarding house, or a halfway house, but for the homeless. With so many HVAC companies in our area, it would be possible to get one of the older hotels reopened. The HVAC companies could get together and install a good heating system.  Instead of putting cots in one big room, the people could retain their dignity and have some privacy in their own rooms. There would be plenty of heating to keep them warm and safe. Then I think about the older people who are in their homes. Many can not afford to have heating in their homes.  They have small space heaters to keep them warmth because of not getting raises in their Social Security. A 2% raise in their checks does not come close to the raises there has been in food, medications, and housing. It makes me feel guilty, living in a perfectly heated home, and complaining about being cold.  Maybe I could start a campaign to get every human being to give a warm place to everyone without out. There would be no one sleeping on the streets.
