As you pass you see a cardboard sign with the writing asking for money in the corner of your eye. In addition, to his unpleasant smell, long beard, and messy hair it seems he is invisible. So many people pass by him still they walk on with their day as if nothing even happened. They just look at him with either pity or disgust, and even both. Often times, people experience things in their life that often force them to lose everything and live out on the streets, or many times it is by choice that they live on the streets.
I lived in the outskirts of New York City for the first seventeen years, eleven months, and twenty-three days of my life. I loved the enormous oak tree outside my house; the winding roads through my neighborhood in Valley Stream; the quiet moments when the lights went out on the train connecting Long Island to lively Manhattan; the tiled murals scattering the walls of subway stations; the indescribable energy of people bustling around Union Square. Underneath the colossal skyscrapers, I often felt like a tiny ant crawling between blades of grass — small, perhaps even a little insignificant, but grounded. Looking up at the top of buildings, feeling the flow of passersby around me, I could not help but feel that I was standing exactly where I belonged. I wanted to stay in New York City so badly that all but one of the colleges I applied to during my senior year were within three hours of Manhattan.
Fines for Homeless Did you know that over 100 cities in the U.S. have made homeless everyday things illegal? For example, homeless have been being fined for sleeping and living on the streets. In addition homeless are expected to pay these fines in a certain amount of time or they can get into serious trouble and possibly even go to jail. Also when the police start fining the homeless it causes a negative relationship to form and homeless start not trusting the police. Lastly, shelters can be either too full or too dangerous for people, and if living in cars and streets is illegal there is no place for homeless to live.
Homelessness is a complex social issue with a variety of economic and social factors such as poverty, lack of affordable housing, physical and mental health, addictions, and community/family breakdowns. Homelessness has increased its number by at least a 1% since last year, reached nearly 554,000 people who are living in harsh conditions. The government and its policies/bans only harm the homeless instead of being beneficial to them. With the “City wide bans on camping in public have increased [along with the]… city wide bans on sleeping in public…, sitting or lying down in particular places… [and,] bands on sleeping in vehicles have [all] increased”(Wiltz).
It was really surprising at first by all this. Summer time is undoubtedly the best time You wake up to see the sun already up and it doesn’t set till after you go to bed. So even if you work late till 5 pm, you still have about 5 hours to have fun in the sun. Picnicking is practically a way of life here. The Swedes even have celebrations like Midsummer’s Eve and August Crayfish parties just to celebrate the sun.
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.

My trip to Bronx, New York last summer was a very remarkable experience for both my sisters and I. We traveled to different places and did many activities that we have never went or done before while living in Queens. The thought of reaching New York was so tantalizing that I began to feel a little worried and nervous. It was an endless six hours trip, and every minute seemed like hours as we kept on looking out the airplane window constantly; but after what seemed like eternity, we
I would argue that leaving the place that I was born and where I grew up I could leave because growing up I love the city that I'm from and I always well but I've always wanted more in life and I was used to a lot of change was seeing people come in and out of my life that it wouldn't be hard for me to leave where I'm from. But I will always love and care for where I'm from and I want to give back to East Liverpool but I feel there's more to life than just being born somewhere where you're from and staying there for your whole life when there's a huge world that you can explore and maybe find a better life somewhere else.

Her eyes are drifting from page to page in her book, a world that doesn’t exist-mythology comes to life, prophecies are told, and heroes are born. Though this world only exist in the series of Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Richard “Rick” Riodran. The girl that reads these books is Elizabeth Rodriguez born in Cuba on December 15, 1999, daughter of Reinaldo Rodriguez and Angela Maria Hernandez. First and foremost, I’ve lived my entire life in Hialeah, Miami, Florida. Though my birth was in Cuba, I came here as a five month baby so I’m more American than Cuban.
We see them as a crowd, we call them the homeless, as if it tells who they are. What most forget is that they are also people. These “people” with social disabilities or financial problems are abandoned by society and become homeless on the streets and although many believe they don’t owe anyone help. Homelessness is a very huge problem that America has come to face. Millions of people, including children, families, veterans, and the elderly live day after day without food, water, or a roof over their heads.
