Homelessness

Last night, I was one of the many volunteers who joined forces in counting the number of homeless people (as best as we could anyways) in the City of Angels. Championed by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA), the energetic clarion call was echoed by the Los Angeles Police Department, media outlets and policy makers alike.

Having lived in Australia and now America, and spending my formative years in Asia a non-welfare region, the alarming increase of tent cities and its citizens' blatant disregard for civic mindedness and their fellow citizens is truly shocking.

Who has failed them? Their families? Society? Government? Welfare system? Friends? Or even, their own selves?
 
It really begs the question of what was the tipping point that has made them into willing, yes willing citizens of tent cities.
