On Homelessness & People Outside the System

What are the first impressions when we see someone on the streets?

How can I help them?

I better walk quicker.

Is their situation the result of the choices they made or that someone else made for them.

Will it be the final step in this person’s journey or a transition period?

That’s not what we picture when we see people that made the street their permanent residence. We fall into what it is called ‘pluralistic ignorance’. We choose the herd that has some power. We cling on to that. And we don’t notice people outside the system of belief, people that need help.
