Nick Beres provides stunning report on growth of tent cities around Nashville for homeless

NewsChannel 5's Nick Beres produced some solid journalism this evening with a report of more than 30 tent cities for the homeless across Music City.

The reason is the economy and so many home foreclosures. But Beres' report on the number of people living in tents around Nashville is simply staggering.

Beres deserves our praise for such an insightful report on the need right under our noses. Now with what Nick has told us, what is going to be the response from a city with more than 1,000 places of worship?

Government does not have the resources at any level. So it is going to be up to us.
