One year ago, Boulder Outreach for Homeless Overflow posted this photo of Colorado pioneers on their Facebook page with the caption: “Colorado’s original homeless . . .” I shared it to my own FB page, adding this comment:
Nope! The only thing pioneers got for FREE was a struggle to survive; there weren’t a bunch of do-gooders handing out Free Food, Free Clothing, Free Medical Care, Free Cash Benefits, Free Shelter, etc. Put today’s homeless folks in a Time Machine and send ’em back 150 years, they’d all be dead within a week.
