Over 23000 Kids In New York City Are Homeless.
Yesterday, I was watching a TV Show called "Good Day New York." I watch this show every morning because it is a part of my daily routine while getting ready to leave my home. This show is so informative because it has entertainment but it also has stories that are really serious in nature along with their political views.
The conversation yesterday was about New York City having the highest rate of homeless people that they have seen in a long time. I was so shocked to find out that over 23000 kids in New York City are homeless. As we all bicker about who the next president is going to be, we must take action to find out the cause of the increase in homelessness and look for solutions that would eradicate this crisis.
How can we keep bailing out other countries when ours is falling apart? How can a child concentrate in school when he or she doesn't have a place to lay their heads? The answers lie with our current president and the mayors of these cities.
I know a lot of states have torn down projects that house a lot of people and I agree that in the past, it was an eyesore, but, maybe we need some of these developments to house people who are homeless and give them a stable place to stay. We cannot train up a child in the way that they should go, when they are broken and they don't have a home. Just imagine all the extra things that you would have to think about when you are homeless. Even if you are employed, you would have to find a place to lay your head every evening. What a shame!
This is America and change must come before it is too late.
