I remember when I was going to the beach with my family for summer vacation, and things didn’t go exactly as planned. We packed up our stuff and started to drive there, and soon enough arrived at the beach. What we didn’t know until then was that my mom wasn’t able to get the job transfer in time so she was jobless and we didn’t have a place to sleep, so we were stuck in the car for a good while. During this time we did what we could but ended up running low on money, so we went to get help from churches and other organizations while we were there. I saw many homeless people in the area and it was pretty sad what I saw. After a month we returned and stayed with a friend until we found a place to stay. It was better than before but it’s an experience ill never forget. Living in a car for a month is something very challenging, always needing to find a place to park and sometimes having to use the bathroom outside when there is nothing else you can do. It’s always good to lend a hand to those who live an every day life like this, so if a friend doesn’t always smell his best, or seems to always wear the same clothes everyday see if they need some help instead of running into conclusions.
