I was homeless...I've been homeless...and the reason I was there was because I chose to put myself there.

Truthfully. I know it doesn't negate your statistics but there are some truly heartbreaking stories out there and then there are just allot of kids trying to grow up and making bad choices for themselves. We all did it. you're just pointing it out in a way that makes it seem like there is some kind of menacing entity behind it all.

If more communities pulled together instead of looking to point out what's wrong with the way you live as a neighbor than Amen.

To much alcoholism and over the counter drug abuse going on in America...coupled with greed and control it is a dangerous concoction....

JOBS are the answer to Homelessness. If decent paying American Jobs are available; fathers and mothers will be able to support their families. Stop Foreclosures, Predatory Lending, and Bank stacking of withdrawals. Put Banking back in the Banking Business, and value back in the dollar. Only a Strong America will eliminate the economics woes of The World.

I worry that its getting harder & harder for a job to keep people fed and housed. This administration does not want that to happen wants us poor, starving & without a home . Did I hear Mayor Bloomberg says 300 sq feet is big enough for folks to live in he should give up his mansion & try it out before he tells other folks wha they need

These are homeless children. They are not orphans. How did the discussion go in that direction?

This says it ALL ~ stop helping other countries ~ and TAKE CARE OF OUR OWN. Making sure EVERY child has a bed to sleep in ~ war clothes to wear ~ good food in their bellies and have the opportunity to a Great education ~ should be THE major priority of any and all our Presidents of this Country ~ CHILDREN ARE OUR FUTURE ♥.

I was homeless for until three weeks ago. I had been homeless for 14 months of my youth.. This is a real problem and depression is probably the worst. Not having anyone to care, a home to sleep in, food to eat it makes the struggle to live seem never-ending. I'm thankful that I was saved. I don't know where I would be if not for my friends.

I support local Food Banks and food pantrys here in Houston, TX. How can families improve their chances for success or how can children do well in school if they don't have basic nutrition, clothing, school supplies, and medicine? Why should the US Govt dump Billions in Fed aid around the world without first looking in our own backyard? Lets help other countries, but make sure our own starving people are fed 1st!

I know the statistics for american children and it irritates me when I see the commercials to help children in other countries I don't think we need to worry about them as long as there are children in our neighborhoods and cities/towns that are homeless and or hardly surviving. When all are taken care of in the U.S. then it makes more sense to worry about children in other countries.

that is a selfish viewpoint- it is opening our hearts to doing the right thing everywhere you are
and not closing our minds ad hearts to people beyond the American border is when you will start to evolve as a human being to a more enlightened viewpoint
