A large percentage of them might be lazy bums but there are a number of these people who are homeless not because they chose to but because they were forced into it. A story I read earlier about a soldier who refused to shoot civilians, was court-martialed for failing to follow orders then "blacklisted" so he never could get a job. He ended up on the street poor and homeless for refusing to murder innocent civilians. Next time you see a homeless man or woman, don't think you are in any way superior to them. Before you hear their story, don't E-V-E-R judge them.
