Homelessness (Luke 3:11 Project)

Homelessness…
is an increasing problem in this country today…
But experiencing homelessness…
is being encouraged in some schools this way.
Where some students sleep on a football field…
in boxes like some homeless sleep each day…
to let them experience for one night…
how the homeless struggle every single day.
Cause these students who participate…
experience some hunger by skipping a meal…
so just these few hours of time…
gives them a semblance of how the homeless feel.
Whether feeling the cold in winter…
or the heat of a hot summer night…
students experience homelessness in a box…
which gives each more compassion and insight.
For the plight of the homeless…
happens to many who’ve struggled to succeed…
but have fallen on difficult times…
and broken by overwhelming financial need.
While some have become homeless…
from the deep wounds of their past…
whether from the traumas of war or abuse…
or addictions that just seem to last.
But if these students learn through this project…
with more compassion and the ability to understand…
then homelessness can be less in the next generation…
who may be more sympathetic and extend a helping hand.

  1. Reblogged this on fiercefabulousfunny and commented:
    Homelessness in America has become so predominant. I was in San Francisco last week after being away for two years. I was surprised to see how this epidemic has grown. My passion has always been to help the homeless. In my experience one ounce of compassion on our part will go along way in helping someone in need.

  2. It is great that students are raising awareness.. When I am cold I think of how hard it must be for them.. Yet some states ban feeding the homeless.. you can be fined for it.. They claim it is for “their” safety.. but wouldn’t eating from the garbage cans be far less sanitary?
    Thanks for posting 🙂
