We’ve stood witness to homelessness all our lives. In the 1950s we stared at “bums” — alcoholics usually confined to America’s skid rows. Earlier, the Depression and the Dust Bowl rendered whole families homeless.
Today, homelessness has become ubiquitous. Wealth disparity and income inequality combine with gentrification and untreated mental illness to spread homelessness across class lines and demographics.
How do you interact with the homeless in your world? Through your car window or with handouts on the street? Do you work in homeless aid?
Have you or a friend or family member ever been homeless? And what vision do you have for reducing the scourge of homelessness?
Think back about Homelessness and share forward!
