SENIORS PAINTED A ROSY PICTURE WHILE DAILY ENDURING HELL ON EARTH IN SAN FRANCISCO.

It is not funny anymore - when the Seniors are called to a Town Hall meeting - to vent, shout, scream - and told by those that can do something for them - that the future is bright.


Such was a meeting held at City Hall on May 21, 2012 that started at 10:30 am in Room 250.


Daily the Seniors in San Francisco by large - experience hell on Earth.


After the drab presentation - generalities were offered - with no solutions in sight - and for sure NO solutions with time lines.


It was time for so called Public Comment - a measly - two minutes.


Senior after Senior - came to the podium and spoke in English and Chinese. Those that spoke in Chinese had their statements translated in English.


The theme was the same - " we the Seniors of San Francisco are treated with disdain".


The presentation given by the authorities did not reflect the situation at hand.


The situation today; concerning the Seniors in San Francisco is simple - too many Seniors - who should be having peace of mind and good health - are suffering.


Many of them thrown on the streets of San Francisco - to fend for themselves.


Here are some photographs:

Our City has all the information - all the data - all the required information. What is lacks is genuine - leadership:
