  Poverty and Homelessness...

The Homeless Guy-"New to This Blog" Post

Another good post going on over at the If you have never visited there check it out.

The quote that caught my eye was this:

"Wow, what a concept, people living in a world "with" homeless people - where homeless people are considered to be equal to other non-homeless people, where homeless people are given as much respect as non-homeless people - qualifying for a place in the world solely because they are people."

I think the mindset in the United States toward poverty and homelessness is one of the most narrow minded in the world. In Latin America, India, and Africa, poverty is seen as an eventuality and commonplace. In many places in the world, it's common for people to live wherever they can find to sleep. Many people build their houses from whatever they can find, and make home wherever they can.

But our country is obsessed with everything being neat and tidy. The grass cut just so, and weeded, the house painted an acceptable color. There is no place in civil society for people on the fringe who live outside of these preordained ideas of housing.

More to come tommarow..
