Is Christmas for Everyone?

Recently the mayor of Claycord posted about Christmas for Everyone and how they were able to Bless the less fortunate of our community inspite of their recent Christmas burglaries... After reading some of the harsh comments posted by members of this community about the over population of drunkards at the park there... I am re-posting this story as it is easy to become hardened to the homeless of Concord by the sights we all see around the Claycord area..I am referring to the 13 Drunkards of Claycord and the likes of course ...Those guys have been harassing and loitering for years and years but they do not represent the homeless population in Concord...Though they do not have homes most of them,,,they are something else entirely...No, here is the face of Concord's homeless ...Just a guy trying to stay out of sight as he pushes and drags everything he has in the world up and down a local street here in Concord. I don't know his story,but I do know that it is important not to forget the less fortunate as we head into the Holiday Season this year..So let's all not let the 13 Drunkards cloud the Issue ... Homeless people exist here in our city and I do not have a solution to this problem...However Kindness and Generosity to those who actually are genuinely in need goes a long way... Remember , its getting colder at night.....Smokey...
