Letter: Help the homeless

I think that since homeless people are a part of our Earth, they deserve to be treated equally. Just because homeless people don’t have houses does not mean they are evil or bad. Homelessness is something that could happen to anyone. I think it is wrong to be mean to homeless people.

We should find a solution to help homeless people, including shelters where homeless people can stay and help to get a house for themselves. If homeless people know that other people care about them, it would give them hope. And hope is important, especially for the homeless. I think the homeless people deserve our help, sympathy and compassion. Homelessness is especially hard on children. They are often cold and hungry. We should try to help them, and make them feel better.
