While walking this morning in Portland, Oregon I met Nathan. Too me the weather In Pacific Northwest is nasty and I don’t know how people survive on the streets. Nathan told me he has a sleeping back, a few jackets and uses storefront awnings when he can to stay dry.

Nathan has been homeless off and on since we was 10 years old.

Many street people do not want to use shelters. Lines to eat or use showers are long. Often they are not safe.

Nathan survives by begging for money at an intersection. In weather like today he hopes to get enough money for a nights stay in a hotel. Today Nathan was lucky

    If you don't want to go to a shelter then you are choosing to live on the street. Why should I support that? People who care should donate money to the shelters and those who sleep on the streets should be thrown in jail as vagrants.

    To the person who commented before me, all I can say is WOW. I am amazed at your level of ignorance, insensitivity and lack of compassion.
