One social concept that heavily affects the homeless population is that of dehumanization. Dehumanization is the deprivation of human rights from a person or group with the intention of undermining the individual being represented by a specific situation. In the case of the homeless population, they are often segregated from society and abused in various forms. The segregation of homeless people from society is often given two arguments as to why they are a “class apart”. These two arguments are that homeless people have done or are doing things that society sees as morally unacceptable and that homeless people have received help from their social community and have not made efforts to make connections.

The Death of a loved one is painful and destructive; however, there's healthy ways to rebuild yourself after that loss. Holden, the protagonist of The Catcher In The Rye, and his family lost Allie and they all showed signs of suffering from the loss since they didn’t find helpful ways to make peace with Allie’s death.

Even though the realities Ilyich and Loman has experienced are similar, the love and support from family eventually makes their death have different meaning.

I see this reflected in the growing number of people who have disassociated not only with church, but other civic organizations and are opting instead to forge their own way. “Everywhere we see restless and nervous people, unable to concentrate and often suffering from a growing sense of depression. They know that what is shouldn’t be the way it is, but they see no workable alternative.

Homelessness is very real in the United states with 3.5 million Americans left without a place to call home each year.

The vast majority have been thrust into homelessness through a life altering situation that was unexpected and unplanned for.

And concerningly, it is found that myriads of people who are free of financial hardships feel that it is not their business or responsibility to help the penniless. As Anna Quindlen has stated in her essay, “Homeless”, the majority of society is choosing to ignore those sleeping on the hard pavement of the sidewalk, merely going around the problem, instead of facing it and endeavoring to find a solution, or even contributing help on a small-scale.
