Sad to say, but many replyers are truly missing the point here. This is not the time to play the blame game and point fingers. Have you ever volunteered at one of these homeless shelters? If so, have you ever sat down with them and heard their stories? Probably not, and you probably don't care right. (And Yes I have, but not enough). Well, I applaud the great efforts of such agencies out there who are willing to help others in their time of need. Yes, it is important to learn HOW they got to the point of homelessness, but at the same time they need our help NOW! For those who don't want to lend a hand, then don't. I know some of you are familiar with the movie where Will Smith played a homeless guy. He was not homeless b/c of all the reasons some of you are pointing out. Guess what? There are more like him that are homeless today. One more thing. I ignore comments made by people telling me (SOMEONE BORN AND RAISED IN WILMINGTON) to just move away. The majority of people living in MY hometown are NOT from there. My husband & I made the difficult decision last year to move away. Away from our family, friends, Church family, co-workers. Wilmington will ALWAYS be my hometown. To all those in the struggle to keep a roof over your head and food on the table, "Don't give up"!! God Bless!
