Do you feel bad for the homeless?

Someone once told me that some homeless people like to be homeless. Do you think that is true? They dont have to worry about bills. They can go anywhere they like. Of course they have to walk or hitchhike. But they have to worry about what they are going to eat and where they will sleep. They wouldnt be able to get a job because employers what a home address and of course personal apperance must be neat and clean. What do you think? I personally think no one would want to be homeless. They have no where to go to keep warm or take a shower. I am thankful for all that i have because I know that some people dont have this and any of us could become homeless.

Yes I do. Many people now a days live paycheck to paycheck. There but for grace goes any of us. Some have mental issues. I don't think anyone LIKES being homeless.

yes i do. specially if there are kids involved. i wonder... most parents do anything and everything to make their children safe but i am so shocked why others prefer to live on the street. i am a single mom of four children and i will do anything just to give them shelter. i small one will do as long as we dont have to sleep on the streets.

Yes I feel very sorry for the homeless people and worse if I see any kids homeless. I fear for their safety and wonder how do they survive without shelther. Nobody likes to sleep on the streets. This homeless sitution happens when a person is too poor to pay for shelther. I hope the government or orgnization can come up with practical solutions on how to solve homeless problem.
