Homeless people are no different from you and I; their circumstances are. Many of those who find themselves in a homeless situation feel they would rather face the streets than go back to the situation they left. So, they're stuck on the streets with nowhere to go. Although people often do look down on them, there's no reason to think lesser of the homeless.
This design by Jordan Bouma reminds us that homeless people are no different from those of us who have a home. Through a college assignment, Jordan had a first-hand experience walking the streets of East Hastings. From his experience, he learned, "The homeless are not a different species than those who have homes." Jordan discovered that the homeless were people with whom to laugh and love. His experience helped him see homeless people for what they are, and it changed his heart.
