When we think about poverty we think of countries like Haiti , Africa , and Brazil but we wouldn't think that the united states is also a part of great poverty.A lot of families all across the states go a day without food. When I think about this I ask myself what are we doing wrong and what can we do to as a nation to make things better? .
There are shelters all around but what I have noticed is that most of them carter to females and children. Men find themselves sleeping in the streets and no type of shelter.Build shelters that cater to men and offer more assistance to men. Some people say why don't the homeless get a job but what some people don't understand is that most of these men have serious problems that can not be addressed overnight. Some men have health issues or a drug habit I feel that the system doesn't give this men and option so they are left to do for themselves.
I believe that we should start changing things one day at a time, when ever we have the chance give a homeless man some help anyway that we can. Before judging someone laying in the streets try to put yourself in there shoes and try to feel what that person is going through because nobody wants to be homeless.
