Homeless People

Danny and his wife drove me through the downtown area on the way to have a delicious lunch.

I was saddened by the many tents I saw, the many homeless people sitting in front of tents or on chairs and benches.

Questions came to my mind. 

How do they survive?

How do they get money for food?

Where do they go to the toilet?

Do they have families or children?

What I take for granted the homeless do not have, nor do they all want it.

Betty once offered $5 to a homeless person. With a look of disdain, he pushed her hand offering the money away.

Every city has a homeless problem. There are city councils passing bills making available millions of dollars trying to find a solution.

In the end – nada, but will keep trying. 

All of the homeless, as children, had families and plans for a good life.

What happened?
