    Why?

    Why do people be mean to the homeless? Do they not realize what the homeless have to do to survive? Just a few years ago I found a poor lonely blind man by the streets hardly having enough energy to move his hand. On another occasion I found a person who had no more energy to beg...

    That's how it happens.

    Some version of that story is true for almost every homeless person out there. It happens because of not being loved. Because of not having supportive reciprocal loving family relations from the beginning. It is never mental illness, and rarely addiction. It is lack of love...
