I have found more homeless people in and around Lexington’s downtown public library than patrons.
I am aware he city is working on the problem and that there has been progress. But we have got to build places for them to live and expect some responsibility from those who are able-bodied. It does not help to just give them a soft place to land and feeding programs.
We, the general public, turn a blind eye to the problem. We pass the homeless as quick as we can. Nothing will change unless we decide to do something about it.
