Because of the media’s coverage of dog food eating seniors living under bridges, Bud and Margaret were able to live a clean, modest lifestyle and not die in the pain and disgrace of poverty, living in tents or under bridges.
Today, America has children living under bridges (lots of them).
The number of homeless students attending Duluth public schools jumped 21% this year (a statewide trend and worse in many parts of the nation).
Among the *industrialized nations, (the 24 nations with long established infrastructures and democracies) the U.S. ranks number 1 in child poverty with 23% of our children living in poverty.
Homeless children are 3 times more likely to be sexually assaulted than those living at home. Homeless children find it much harder to succeed in school or in life and their delinquency & crimes rates are far higher than the general population.
There is not a religion on the planet that abandons children & those people claiming there is do not have real religion (point that out to them).
