Homelessness is a worldwide issue. However, homeless people tend to be found more often in cities. About 13 percent of Americans live in poverty, and almost 60 percent of us will spend at least one year in poverty. It has been predicted that more than 1.3 million children will be homeless this year. Some generous organizations around the world are working to try and end this terrible issue. Some of these are soup kitchens and the Chicago Coalition for the homeless, or the CCH. Homelessness is causing terrors such as starving to death, freezing to death, discomfort and poor sanitation. I chose to represent homelessness with this picture comparison of a man sitting peacefully in a warm, brightly colored house, next to a man curled up in an alleyway struggling to keep warm, all black and white and unhappy. I feel that it captures the huge difference between peoples' lives in America, and I know that we have to do something to stop it.
