I congratulate Khadijah Williams and those who helped her. May she live her dream.

Now, what about her 32-year-old mother and her younger sister who are apparently still homeless?

As a volunteer tutor, I have learned that a child loses three months of education every time he or she is moved to a different school. Homeless children often change schools several times each school year.

It is time for all of us to find our compassion, our sense of the common good, and loudly say we will no longer put up with homelessness. We must write and call our political leaders. We must send contributions to homeless service agencies. We must teach our children that homelessness is unacceptable. We must volunteer our time.

Elaine Butler
