Many people could care less of homeless veterans even though those veterans give those people freedom and rights. Those people need to help support our homeless veterans. The government is already helping homeless veterans get off the streets and helping them start a new life. Many kids have parents that have served in the military including my parents. I couldn’t imagine what would happen to us.
It is disheartening when the homeless is being treated poorly by other people. Some people think of the homeless as someone who is inferior or dirty. But , in spite of the all those negative stereotypes you will be quite surprised by how some of the homeless have a positive outlook maybe because they go through a lot more in life, they learned how to live life and not just simply surviving it. There are about 3.5 million Americans who are homeless each year. Homelessness will always be present.
Also many homeless people have a mental illness or disability making them unable to have a job. Even those with a job are unable to make a sustainable living off it. Wages are so low that one must work at least two jobs but with housing prices being so high, it makes find a place to live extremely hard. Washington and California have some of the highest minimum wage standards but even that is not a livable wage. We as a society have simplified a solution because many of us do not understand the complex issues that these circumstances
Moreover, there is the fact that the majority of homeless individuals do not have cell phones or consistent transportation to a workplace. Adding to these problems is the difficulty of staying clean, and it begins to come clear why these individuals have so much difficulty finding and holding down a job. Some also hold the perception that all homeless individuals are unemployed. A Vox article counters that idea, stating that minimum wage workers who work full-time would not be able to live stably in the average apartment in any state in the U.S. Therefore, even people who have full-time jobs can be at risk.
Quindlen is trying to say that the homeless do not have small things to enjoy in life like we do. They do not get to come home and grab their favorite food right after school or work everyday like some of us do. They fight to survive everyday and no human being should have to live like an animal everybody should be able to have that feeling of love and happiness that we have when we come home. The homeless have it worse than we want to see but if we as human beings start seeing this and realizing that nobody should have to live like that I believe that we could give homeless people the life they deserve and give them a place they can go to and call home and finally feel that love and happiness again like all human beings
I often see the homeless on the side of the road and I normally refer to them as homeless people but what I fail to realize is, that “homeless person” has a name, that “homeless guy” is a human being just like the rest of us longing for certainty, stability and privacy. Those “homeless people” are human beings without a home. Anna states, “Home is where the heart is. There’s no place like
Let 's talk about ways we can do to help. There are many things we can do to help. You don’t need to donate a big amount to help. Just sit down with a homeless person and talk to them. Showing that we care about can motivate them to make a change.
If a large group of homeless people without homes were to immigrate near my home, and some people who live in my community want the government and police to send these people away. I would politely want the homeless to do the same thing, by politely making them leave my property and community. I also would pay the government a visit because if there are homeless people coming all the way up to my community that must mean the government or police isn't doing their job in protecting my community and supporting these homeless people in getting jobs. If homeless people were to immigrate to my community I would feel terrible about the fact; that my hard working money I made was spent on a big house in a community full of homeless people. I would feel like my hard work, great tasting foods and, tax paying dollars is unappreciated by my fellow government.
Before we can get into the details of the things that can be done to help the homeless, first we must understand the scope of people affected by homelessness and the magnitude of homelessness in our country. On a single night in 2016, 549,928
