Thank you Christeen for this article. I wish there was more support on Care2 for homeless people.

Anyone can become homeless. In fact I was homeless for a while because I stopped working to go and live with my grandad when he was dying of cancer, and it was a very valuable life experience for me.

It is not a crime to be homeless!

There, but for the grace of God, go I.

I've been homeless too and know all too well the horrors and realities that come with it and still believe that not enough attention, concern or compassion is given to homeless people.

Any one of us can end up homeless. People need to stop judging , stop looking the other way, give a helping hand , say a kind word , engage in a dialog . We are all in this together !

The video did not work for me Christeen, but I signed the petition. We all have to show more compassion to all the suffering people on our planet.

Noted. Brings to mind the saying: "But for the grace of God there goes I". Due to some misfortune so many intelligent qualified people are homeless. Being homeless makes if very hard to get a new start.

Signed - My Mom and I were almost homeless twice when I was a teenager. Thankfully we were able to stay with friends until we found another place to live on both occasions. I think these experiences made it clear to me that I wanted to pay off my mortgage as quickly as possible which I did and 21 days later I was downsized from my job.
