HUMANITY: People in need at home

editorial image

I write in reply to the ‘Show some humanity’ letter from David Redden (News Post Leader, June 2).

I agreed with this letter until the last paragraph about why we fought in wars.

Our armed forces fought bravely in two Gulf wars and Afghanistan, and yet in spite of the UK being a rich country many ex-servicemen are forced to live on the streets.

Perhaps charity should, indeed, begin at home.
