Vigil for Homeless Persons Who Died

Yesterday I attended a vigil memorializing those persons who died this year in Albuquerque who were without a home.
  • 200 - number of persons present at the vigil.

  • 50 - number of the deceased.

  • 11 - number of those who had been resident at our shelter at one time.

  • 0 - the number of political leaders present.

Do you think that the political leaders knew about it? How about the media? There should be more coverage , I remember going, and it was very moving and beautiful.
