Voice of San Diego is focused on local news. That doesn’t mean we’re not aware or obsessed with understanding national events like what happened in Orlando, Fla. But we’ll stay with what we do best and while we won’t be covering the shooting and its aftermath, please know we have many of the same concerns and feelings as you. In San Diego, a vigil in support of the families of the victims was held Sunday night under the Hillcrest gay pride flag and another one is happening Monday night at The Center in Hillcrest.
We’ve all done it – passed by a homeless person and instead of letting ourselves feel all the emotions that come naturally when crossing paths with a person in obvious need, we make up stories about why he or she is on the streets.

VOSD’s Lisa Halverstadt turns her focus back to the rising homeless population in San Diego and sheds light on three of the most persistent and distracting myths about the homeless in San Diego.
