How utterly ridiculous!! A week, and he still has no clue. How lucky this boy was to have that ten dollars. How foolish to waste it all within only 4 days. He needs to clue up. The homeless DO deserve help. They've been kicked down so many times. And then the cities make laws to outlaw their homelessness, all the while cutting budgets and closing shelters. How many shelters are there that actually do something to assist these people? Welfare is a joke. The government is a joke. Spending billions to blow up other countries and buy foolish toys for the rich while other HUMAN BEINGS in the street mere floors below are living in cardboard boxes, doing their best to raise a family. Sudden job loss, a nasty landlord, a bad week, and anyone could be on the street. Nothing would surprise me less than to see this young man back in his comfortable bed, not thinking at all about the people he encountered during his week on the street.
