    Homelessness In America

    332 words - 2 pages

    Homelessness is not something that was created over night; it has existed for a long time; often we choose not to see the homeless, or bother with them, so we look the other way.

    Homelessness Recently on a Saturday morning while ignoring my traditional routine, I opted to make a run to my local Albertson's bakery to acquire some donuts for a nutritional family breakfast. In doing so, I swung my car into its usual parking spot as if on auto drive. I opened my door on this unusually brisk morning to witness something that shook my comfy cozy surroundings.
