Today Brandon posted a photo that was disturbing to me.  It was of a young man from Kampala, Uganda.  As you can see the young man is sitting among broken pieces of furniture.  The young man is quoted as saying, ‘The landlord doesn’t care how much furniture you’ve sold this month.’

No one should be homeless.  No one!  And no one should live in fear of becoming homeless.

What makes this photo so distressing to me is that I can’t help.  And I’m sure if I could pay his rent for six months, his landlord would exploit my gift by raising his rent.
