    Homeless boy breaks down in tears after receiving his first bed

    An 8-year-old from Michigan, who has spent most of his life in and out of homeless shelters with his mom, was just given his first bed thanks to a charitable organization. Daeyrs had recently moved into state housing, but was left sleeping on a pile of blankets since his family couldn't afford to furnish the place.

    It's pretty despicable that we'd spend money on others before addressing issues like this.

    There is no reason for anyone to be homeless in this nation.
    Even if they choose to be.

    I am sure there are some people on here that have experienced homelessness. I have. When I was 18. To hard headed to go home. So I slept in my car. It was cold too. I would get up and warm the car every 2 hours. Create ways to make money. I would wait till late and then quietly coast up to friends homes and park close to their houses. One time my friends dad (left for work about 4 AM) tapped on the window and asked if I was okay. I was a little embarrassed. He convinced me to talk with my father. I went back home and worked it out. I was certainly more mature at that point.

    Since then I have learned a good percentage of the homeless have mental illness. I do think many families have some tough choices in this arena. If they are not a danger to themselves or others you can let them live on the street or try and have them become a ward of the state. It’s tough. I have seen and know both. I can see where someone doesn’t want hem locked up and they don’t want to be. I have visited people in those places. It’s really awful.

    It is amazing to me the Dems haven't and can't seem to figure out why Trump was elected. Why they lost the middle Blue Voters. Here is one big reason. The BIG TENT PARTY isn't so big anymore. Middle Blue Collar dems are not accepted because they don't agree with the left wing. They are attacked and ridiculed in today's Dem party. One is not allowed to disagree. The whole selling point of the Dem Party was the ability to differ. Not anymore.

    More proof that private charity orgs can work hand-in-hand with the states in giving a little boy the most basic necessity (a bed to sleep in). I want an illegal boy to have the same thing... as long as his parents are OFF welfare, working and here with a work permit and applications filed to one day become Americans. NOT MEXICAN-AMERICANS GOD DAMN IT! AMERICAN AMERICANS!!
