Homeless in another country
”An ordinary day is usually not an ordinary day as for other people. Me and the rest of my friends, who are as well undocumented, have almost the same kind of day. The days are useless, no activity, no school, no job, nothing. It is very depressing and boring. Sometimes we try to hang out with friends to have some fun but we have to always meet up outside. We aren’t allowed to go inside each other places, like that or to be guests”, Joseph says and drinks slowly from the hot coffee he has in his hand.

People maybe do not want to see what they are seeing when they go by a man or a women sitting on a cardboard outside, but it is a sad fact that homeless people are on the streets and suffering. Why are we not showing affection, why are we not lending them a place to sleep and take a shower or even a hot meal to eat? At the end are not we all humans?
