Rest in peace. I hope that the newspaper can find out more about who she was and print an obituary.
In one of the richest areas of the planet, close to a church, near the police department, in a neighborhood full of wealthy people in homes with heat, clean beds and plenty of comforts, not far from holiday revelers who've been eating expensive food in warm restaurants, many holiday shopping and enjoying this gorgeous weather, this poor woman passed away alone. May she rest in peace.
People in third world countries have it much worse. America has so many opportunities which people take for granted. Obviously, even her own family gave up on her. May she rest in peace.
[Portion removed.] It's much easier to blame an older homeless woman for not taking advantage of the many opportunities presented to her living in Palo Alto as someone without resources. Merry Christmas!
Requiescat in Pace, Jane Doe.
"Of all the preposterous assumptions of humanity over humanity, nothing exceeds most of the criticisms made on the habits of the poor by the well-housed, well- warmed, and well-fed."
