    Grand Central Winter

    I've noticed that many people who haven't experienced homelessness tend to have quite negative attitudes about homeless people. This deeply saddens me. But as I read reviews of the book, Grand Central Winter, by Lee Stringer, I was encouraged. I read the book myself a few years...

    Especially the old ones

    who are just lying on the side of the streets. I wish their children took care of them. Or maybe they never had a family. I wish they had someone beside them.

    Wishing I Could Do More To Help

    When me and my mom went out and a homeless person walked up to ask for change, my mom would give a dollar or two. And I would give $5 or any amount I could find. I would ask her "Why don't you give them more?" and she said that we can't just give everything away to homeless...

    Still In My Prayers

    Among Shadows

    It was the dark of night; the way we expect a typical story of this genre to start out. The young boy trekked across the paved streets, as the bitter cold began to engulf him. He wore nothing but rags - a tattered jacket, ripped jeans, worn black boots and gloves, which had...

    I was in New York once

    and a homeless man came up to me to ask if I would donate any money to him. You could see that he was a little shy because of the rejection he must have had before and was worried I would be the same. My three friends all told him no and walked away, I gave him whatever I had in...
