No i have not, but i have a lot of respect for those who are homeless.
Not all, because some are homeless for terrible reasons, that they may have permitted themselves.
I have been on the brink, one day, away from being literally homeless with two young babies. In today's world people are so wrapped in their own lives, and the lives of other's who do well. They often forget there is people living on the street starving because they lost their job, they were taken for granted, they are mentally challenged and have been thrown out. They have a drug addiction, it really has no matter to me, but it matters to everyone else.
I feel immense sadness when i walk away from a homeless person, I feel sad they can't have a better life, and it hurts me more to think that it probably will never get better for them.
