Chico California — Life is your tapestry of choices
Without a Roof’s letter to the Editor of the Chico News and Review in response to this weeks cover story…Constant Change
Everyone experiencing homelessness has made a choice to do so. The clear majority simply had no other choice. Those with options chose homelessness as the best choice they had. They all had one thing in common — they were poor when they made that choice.
The choice of words by the Executive Director of the DCBA was refreshing, particularly that the downtown is in much better health than most people think and that simply getting rid of homeless people isn’t the solution. These two choices are joined at the hip.
The reason Downtown Chico chooses to do well is the actuation of the view that community is everyone. No one exudes this better than Mr. Schulman who relishes his love for downtown as do those that chose to be steady visitors. Myself included.
Perceptions from afar are often fuzzy and off kilter. Proximity is a great equalizer. Add downtown to your quilt of places. You’ll be pleased with your choice.
Enjoy this three minute slice of Chico’s Respectful Revolution and be part of the Community is Everyone solution — everywhere you chose to go.
