Please, go to HOP's blog. We would love to hear your response:
All of us at one time had a job,a home, and one day we don't have our job anymore,can't pay the rent. Then the landlord comes and tell you that you been evicted from your home. There's nothing you can do about it, but pack all your things and leave. You never think that would ever happen to you until that day comes. Now comes the hard part, you don't have any money, and you don't have any place or any one you could stay with.
And now you are one of the Outdoor People. And now you need to find a safe place to sleep. And I tell you its not a good thing to be sleeping outside. When night time comes its so hard to go to sleep because you get all that wind blowing on your body. Especially only one blanket and no pillow for your head and laying on the hard ground to sleep. That is very uncomfortable to sleep that way for a women.
When your going to sleep you heard noise and people walking by you. And you'll afraid to close your eyes, because you don't know if its safe to go to sleep. And you tell your self is it safe to go to sleep, will I wake up in the morning!
And you don't want to drink any thing at night because there is no bathroom to use. And you can't make a fire to cook any thing or heat up water. Some time at night you get hungy but there's nothing for you to eat. You have to wait till morning to find something to eat. And some time you go with out eating if you can't find any thing.
There's no one to take care of you, you have to take care of your self and you got to watch your own back and never trust any one. Every one is on there own out there.
