Poverty is Deadly

On Auditorium Shores there is a small tribute to people who died on the street. Our friend Jackie noticed butterflies in the tree that with the memorial at its base (click picture to enlarge). " I did a little research at the House the Homeless site and deduced that the butterflies represent citizens who have died in poverty in Austin/Travis County.

  1. This is a tricky thing isnt it? Do you spend time and effort on a memorial to their deaths, or do you try to do something to prevent the next round of deaths. We have that issue over here, too. A tricky ethical dilemma.
