Holiday Homelessness 

Pin It

I recently experienced homelessness for the first time in my life with my daughter, Abby, 5, and son, Isiah, 4. We are presently residing at The Road Home downtown, where Christmas and Santa arrived with an enormous sleigh full of memories.

I really want to thank the community for being there for us and giving us a very merry Christmas. Especially the two ladies with the trunk full of pizza, who promised next year to bring breadsticks, too! There will be three empty plates next year, I promise.

All in all, I think Salt Lake City has the most caring and giving people on earth. My kids looked like they were dressed by Mitt Romney’s wife, Ann. Abby and Isiah have learned and witnessed something special.

To all those who gave and took the time to care for us and others, thank you very much for giving my kids a Christmas to remember. My pictures I took will always remind me of the generosity we experienced.

  • A Strange and Barbaric Practice

    In the well-written City Weekly cover story on circumcision ["Circumcision Decision," Sept. 17], the God of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian religions is credited with beginning this practice: God demands that the 99-year- old Abraham cut off his foreskin in order to prove his loyalty.

  • Mike Noel's Resistance to Reason

    I enjoyed Colby Frazier's cover story about state Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab ["The Herd Bull of the House," May 14, City Weekly]. I attended the Great Public Lands Gamble Rally at the Capitol in January 2015, at which Noel audaciously stepped up to the microphone to attempt a refutation (the gospel according to St. Mike) of the "lies" being perpetrated by the proponents of public lands.
