• “Never judge people who have little to nothing, as one day you may find yourself having nothing at all” Who are we as human beings if we ignore the suffering of others..Those who walk past and look on and do not

    • Dear Aleashiaray,
      I am interested in your post because there are so many homeless people in this world and not many help them. I want to do something in order to have them stand up on their feet as well. One thing you said that stands out for me is, “We can give hope and wisdom to those in a need of a word or a prayer” I think this is intelligent because us humans do pray and we want people to be praying for the homeless even if they walk and ignore them. We at least want the prayers to be out for them to have a better life.

    • Hi Aleashiaray, I’ve been wanting to bring up this topic in my writing, as I also feel strongly about how there are homeless people everywhere around the United States. Like you said ” People walk past them like they’re not even people”. I agree with you because a little empathy needs to be shown to these people, even if you aren’t in their position you could be one day. I wish that more people would show that they cared or start caring. If you haven’t already checked out this website I would advise you to do so, it has some valuable information about the homeless. https://endhomelessness.org/homelessness-in-america/homelessness-statistics/state-of-homelessness-report/

    • Dear Aleashiaray Rheaves,

      I am moved by your post because it’s full of sincere emotions that make me realize how we can do more instead of neglecting what’s right in front of us. It makes people aware of how serious the homelessness crisis is and how they can possibly be the next victims if we don’t act fast.

      One thing you said that stands out for me is how small efforts can make a difference. I think this very true because if everyone participates, success is guaranteed.

      Your post reminds me of the countless homeless people I encounter everyday in New York. I always see everyone ignoring their calls for help and I get very frustrated that I’m not doing much myself. I try my best to provide them with whatever I can, but I believe that we can do much more.

      Thanks for your project. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I’m working on a similar project myself. Three of my classmates and I are working on spreading awareness about the critical issue of homelessness in NYC. Our project is called Helping The Homeless NYC. Please take the time to visit our blog at https://helpingthehomelessnyc.wordpress.com

      Sincerely, Amira.

  • The current debate over kneeling and sitting has become a big issue in America. Everyone on this earth has their own beliefs, its like forcing Muslim to believe Buddhism. Kneeling is really over racial injustice

    • I think that kneeling isn’t disrespectful since they have their hand over their heart. It’s also a way to peacefully protest. I really like how you said the current President is more worried about other countries because I completely agree. I feel like he hasn’t really brought America closer together if anything he has brought us farther apart.
