5. Anybody Can Become Homeless
And at any time.

You just see the end result of Regan's policies of turning out the mentally ill and Vet's out on the street.

There are no fancy words nor a philosophy that can describe the circumstances of what many people are going through right now and to lump everyone in similar circumstances not only lessens their chances to climb out but adds to their current despair.

They do their best with what they have. Most escape but a few can't see their way out.

Remember that.
