They didn’t care what their denomination was, or where they came from.
When I travelled to Spokane WA, I saw several odd sites. I couldn’t believe how hot it was in the summer, plus there were homeless people hanging out under the trees. There was undoubtedly little humidity, so once you got out of the sun, it made a important difference. I saw a sign on the window of a church plus it read, ‘Welcome to our Cooling Center’. I wondered what they meant by a Cooling Center. I went into the church plus I began to ask questions. Being a writer, I was always interested in reading current things. The priest told me that when the temperatures got into the nineties, they opened the church for people to come in plus keep cool. The doors were always unlocked plus they had the a/c on from day till night. He said it was their way of helping to keep the homeless safe. Many times, it was just the children who came in, or the elderly. There were some elderly who had their own homes, however they couldn’t afford to either have their a/c repaired, or to purchase an a/c unit. They didn’t care what their denomination was, or where they came from. Everyone was welcomed into the Cooling Center. He went on to tell me that there were several odd areas in the neighborhood that provided their stores plus libraries for people to be safe during dire heat. I walked out of the cooling center with a smile on my face, knowing that people savor the people of their neighborhood of Spokane WA.
