Rethinking the Way We Perceive Homelessness


I came across this fascinating video from a YouTube channel called "Rethink Homelessness." It features homeless men and women in Orlando, Florida writing their stories on cardboard, set to a cover of Lorde's song "Royals." Some of the stories that we see in the few seconds some of the men and women are heartbreaking. 

It really challenges us to rethink the homeless in our own neighborhoods. They aren't "bums" or "vagrants" as we tend to stereotype them, but real people with real stories.
