According to Document C, “There comes a soldier, his bare feet are seen thro’ his worn out shoes, his legs nearly naked from the tattered remains of an only pair of stockings.” This shows that the soldiers barely have clothes. How can someone in the army continue to get stronger and fight more if they barely have clothes in the freezing temperatures of winter? Also, according to Document C, “I can’t endure it-Why are we went here to starve and freeze.” This shows that the camp lacks in both food and clothes which causes the soldiers to freeze and starve from hunger and lack of clothes to keep them warm. There is constantly a lack of food in the camp and when there is food is it very nasty tasting food. How can I know that after we are done at this camp I will get the supplies I need to survive if I didn’t get them now?
inserts several problems into the seventh man’s life. The pain that this huge wave causes leaves him struggling in every aspect of his life. He is unable to really connect with people and he is hesitant to get into a serious relationship. A thought he shared regarding his relationships is, “That is probably why I never married.

Transitional Housing for The Homeless “My life was a wandering; I never had a homeland. It was a matter of being constantly tossed about, without rest; nowhere and never did I find a home” (Jan Amos Komenský). Imagine being in Waikiki, there are shops, beaches, and tourists everywhere, but there are groups of homeless roaming the streets. Why are they here and not in shelters? Do they have a place to stay?
The homeless have no true place to call their own and they just have to hope and pray they find a safe warm place to sleep and a meal for that day. Worst of all though is that the homeless do not have a place they can feel loved and be happy at like we do when we come home everyday. Quindlen said it best when she says”they are people who have no homes. No drawer that holds the spoons…”(Quindlen 216). Quindlen is trying to say that the homeless do not have small things to enjoy in life like we do.
Life at Valley Forge was obviously horrible, and the ugly truth is that it wouldn’t get much better. Cold was one problem, smoke was another. Hopefully, the soldiers will have the courage to make it through this devastating time. Lack of food, living conditions, and horrid climate are some reasons of why a soldier would quit Valley Forge.

McCandless did not ask to die, it was just an accident, he knew nothing about which seeds where good and which where
For many, we stay, since if we leave, where would we go? For us, there is no warm food made when you get home, no wife or children. Maybe, you won 't come back from the field alive, which might just be a small mercy. Many have much clothing, “ There comes a soldier, his bare feet are seen thro’ his worn out shoes, his legs nearly naked from the tatter’d remains of an only pair of stockings…” ( Doc C) Many of us don’t have many things to go home to, and some might be used to the tattered clothing, and might not know the love of a family. The most important reason for me is loyalty and freedom of my country.
