Dear Reader,

Today's story on chronic homelessness in Miami contains disturbing photos and video.

While many of you access my stories on your cellphones, I would ask you to make an effort to read this story on a desktop to better be able to understand the conditions that I discovered "Linda" living in.

Also, if you share in the concern and outrage at how some homeless people are existing on Miami's streets, please forward the link to this story to any and everyone who you think would benefit from learning about this issue.

On the eve of Miami once again portraying itself to the world as a fun-filled showplace hosting a Super Bowl, the squalor and degradation of the conditions that some of the homeless people on our streets are living in are unacceptable.

Thank you!
