THE EDITOR, Sir:
Walking the streets of Kingston every day, I cannot help but wonder how it is that the city is filled with so many vagrants and destitute persons. This is particularly obvious in front of the Supreme Court, and the streets that have most of Jamaica's top attorneys. Throughout the entire Corporate Area, at stop lights and major road intersections, the sight of such persons is conspicuous.
The Jamaican society is one with many ills - moral, social and economic, among others. However, Jamaicans pride themselves as a lovely people, with a big heart when necessary.
So, as we pause to celebrate and acknowledge the warmth, kindness, family spirit and feeling of care that characterise this festive season, let us remember the poor and the destitute, the street boys and poverty-stricken.
Give a shirt, pants, and a warm meal, say hi and smile even. Do your part to encourage love and peace on earth.
