As soon as the show begins and they show the family's interview tape I just start tearing up.  By the end I'm bawling.  lol

I really love the show but can't handle watching too much of it because it gets me like that.

I love that show. One of the families helped live in my area and a lot of people I knew went to watch them build their new home. It's an amazing show and an amazing feeling knowing that these people's lives are changed for the better.

You are right outmybox. It is atleast worth it to help one person in need, if anything.

I truly understand what you are saying, however, the guy who's the head of it ( can't think of his name ) is just one man who is doing the best that he can, I'd rather he do something than nothing. Those of us who can't house people, we can at least volunteer at shelters to serve meals or even buy meals for those who we come in contact with. By all means, I'm not trying to tell anyone what to do, I'm just saying that we as individuals can only do what's in our means.

Yeah I know. I was watching cops one tiem and this guy and his friend were stealing copper wire to sell for money, they tried to run but the police caught them.<br />
<br />
Of course I just assumed they were your regular crackheads stealing for drug money. But when they sat the one guy down to talk to him he was was crying his eyes out.<br />
<br />
The officer said, "What's wrong, you'll only be in jail for the night?!?"<br />
<br />
The guy said, "I'm hungry."<br />
<br />
That just broke my heart into a million pieces. After that I was inspired and I want to start my own charity for feeding the hungry, of America. <br />
<br />
I don't see the point in sending money and resources to other countries when we've got our own hungry people.

There is so much in the world that needs to be done, and it's almost like they're teasing everyone else to me.

I know you would =]

As someone who has been homeless, I am a strong believer that everyone deserves a home to live in. Not on the street or in sub-standard dwellings where they freeze in the winter and sweat in the summer. There are so many people in this country and others that are suffering. If I had the money, I'd make sure everyone had a decent home to live in, or at least an apartment.

Yeah, I always think about that. When they say that one family in each state gets a home, what about the rest. And there are underlying rules, my mom and I checked their website. You have to own your home. People who are struggling probably don't have the money/credit to own a home.

I can't watch that show, because it seems to me, that there are alot of families deserving of a good home... Families that suffer just as much who just happened to be rejected. I just feel more for the rejected families than the ones who get the new home alot of the time. I guess that makes me a bad person. One family in Pittsburgh got one, but there are so many more people here who are suffering and freezing... I mean... What about them? It just feels like so many are left out that it's more painful than uplifting to watch.
