LETTER: Column helped shift attitudes

After reading this column, I now look into the eyes of people sitting on Baker St. sidewalks as I consider a contribution to them.

Charlie Sivell's recent column gave one reader a new outlook on homelessness.

Re: “Nelson sculptor: Homelessness is not a career”

I really appreciated this column. After reading it, especially with a picture included, I now look into the eyes of people sitting on Baker St. sidewalks as I consider a contribution to them. I hope you continue these articles, as part of Nelson’s search for solutions to homelessness. I think they can help shift attitudes, which is an important part of the process.
