Homeless Children Living in Cars

This was a promotional video for a recent 60 Minutes piece about homeless children in the USA.  I know that can seem very heavy, and it is.  However, when I watched this segment, two things struck me.  First, how fast some children have to grow up.  Second, how resilient people can be despite their circumstances.  In particular, I was stunned by the wonderfully grounded perspective the teen girl has about what other kids complaining.


After watching this, we need to decide if this is right or not.  If it's not right, then the question becomes . . . are we just going to watch it and do nothing OR are we going to take action?  Action can be directly helping someone, making a donation, volunteering some time, or being an advocate to our leaders/family/friends.


Hey!! I'm That Poverty Guy . . . let's make a world of difference together.
