This confused Kennedy because he did not understand why his family had to give almost all of their money to another family. Kennedy did not grow up in a wealthy family. Kennedy’s family always struggled to make ends meet, until his mother started the group. When it was Kennedy’s family’s turn to receive the donations from the women’s group, he realized how it actually helped his family start to come out of poverty.

Have you ever wondered just how many single parents that you pass on your way to work or school that are homeless, living in shelters, or on the streets? Well, I have firsthand experience on what it is like to be homeless in a single parent household during the great recession of 2008.

We ended up packing up what little items we could and lived out of our van for three months in an isolated camp ground. My mother ended up finding a decent minimum wage job along with receiving a housing voucher to move into an apartment complex
Because of the lack of communication between Henry and his parents, they never suspect he is working at a Japanese internment camp and visiting a Japanese girl.
