homeless

I just read an article about a church on Fifth Avenue in New York that allows homeless people to sleep on the grounds outside the church. The church maintains a ten-bed shelter, and the outside people are overflow. The police have begun to force them off the property but it is not clear what laws are being broken.

The number of homeless has gone up dramatically, too.

Certainly there are worse things than what I go through. I sometimes think - there goes a homeless person whose debts are smaller than mine - but that doesn't mean I want to trade places.
