Seattle is a stunning city, boasting majestic mountain ranges and tranquil waters that attract people from all over the country. Unfortunately, Seattle has recently been suffering from an increase in crime, homelessness and disgrace. This increasing malaise has been highlighted in the recent KOMO news documentary ‘Seattle is Dying’.
The film documents the heartbreaking reality of the struggles facing the homeless population of Seattle as well as those who make up its criminal underworld. It’s a difficult yet necessary watch, showing how neglect of these populations can spiral out of control and become detrimental to the entire community. Not only does it show how people are living on the edge, but it also shines light on solutions that could help effect long-term change.
It is not enough to simply turn away from this issue and hope it goes away
