My Sweet Home

You! Ya, you the one that is reading this! I’m going to make a list. Tell me if you have them…a roof, bed, food, water and last of all a home. If you said yes to all of those then stop asking for more because much of the population has none of those. Some people have to dig through garbage every day unless people make a difference. If you see a homeless person, check your pockets for change or just smile and make their day. I’m going to tell you a story of my life. I live in a two-story house with a dog and cat with a loving family that helps me and cares for me every day and I don’t get ignored by them. A homeless person could have the same life in emotions and feelings as me but they get ignored quite often. You know how you hate getting ignored? Then put yourself in the homeless’ shoes – how do they feel getting ignored 24/7? I like my home. You probably like your home. Do you think the majority of homeless people like their home? No, I didn’t think so.
