    My parents also taught me to help others in

    need. My mom said when her and my dad first met the first thing they talked about was building a shelter for the homeless. I guess their ideas rubbed off on me. If I see a homeless person and I have some extra money I usually try to give.

    I worked at a homeless shelter for a year. I didn't really like the job but it was one of the most rewarding experiences I have had. You see people from every walk of life and realize, "this could happen to me." No, homelessness is not solely a result of laziness. It really...
