I was looking at this video of pallet houses…..that’s right, houses made of pallets…..here, take a look.
Anyway, they are so easy to build with, and there are only like 20 million of them in parking lots across America (I made that figure up by the way) and I couldn’t help but wonder why this country couldn’t start a program where pallet houses are built for the homeless in this country? If every major city donated land and made a kind of pallet city for the homeless…..I know, weird idea, but hey, it’s better than any ideas I see coming so far.
And what does this have to do with Living Simple you ask? Well, obviously living in a pallet house is simple living, but beyond that, Living Simple is about getting back to the old ways, where citizens cared about each other. The homeless are real people. They cry real tears and they bleed real blood, and I think it is a national shame that these hundreds of thousands live the way they do.
So there you go! Welcome to the mind of Bill Holland!
