Having a parade is appropriate for a good and just cause. There are other honorable reasons to do this.
In this negative economic climate, there is an important issue to consider. With the increasing homeless situation, we as a community should do more to address this problem.
We can honor our less fortunate, by offering what we can to ensure their basic needs are met, such as food and clothes.
Our simple act of compassion can change a life for the betterment of us all.
