Why is life so unfair?

Sometimes I walk in the streets and meet Street children, they are sniffing glue, eating from the dustbins, sleeping under the bridges and they have nothing to cover their bodies.....this really disturbs me and I ask myself why life is so unfair I wish I could take them to our house to spent the night there but that's not possible because they are hundreds of them especially in my country, do this children have families? Do they have parents? Or the parents are still in the streets. Do you have any feeling for these Street children?

Life is fair. It's the living that makes it unfair as you point it you. There's no wonder why there are good or bad people. There are happy and sad. This goes down to one point, freedom or free agency which it's being abused. Thus, the end justifies the means.

Same here. I get quite disturbed and it is funny that most if not all have parents. I have met one who told me he comes from their home every morning. You should engage some and hear their tales but you have to be careful.

@Akatheu I feel devastated my friend. You know Kenya is a rich country, if we stop corruption even for a single day we safe a million dollars, that's enough to feed to feed all the street children in Nairobi, Mombasa,kisumu,Nakuru and all other major cities.

Apparently, the majority of the parents of these children are unemployed Creating jobs would be a step to take as would a government program to house and feed these children. A hard thing to do for some governments. A shame that more is not being done for these children.

@aureliah I think staying in the streets for them is easy because they don't have bills to pay, that's why the decide to live there
