I don’t know how to feel about this story. I think it’s great that high school kids are raising money for the homeless, but does this really sound like a hard night?
Sure, it was cold that night, but the kids could go inside for pizza, coffee and hot chocolate, play some basketball games in the gym, or play twister in the hallway. Or, they could just lay on an air mattress in their cardboard box with a portable DVD player. Is this really enlightening them on what it’s like to be homeless? I’m all for safety, so if a kid didn’t dress warmly enough, I could understand sending him inside for a while, but this just sounds like a party instead of an eye-opening experience. Like I said, the only redeeming part of it is they had to raise money to be there, so it’s not like they can just show up for a game of twister.
