And, I don't say that lightly. NY Times reporter Andrea Elliott recently published a series of five articles following a homless family near New York City. More specifically, the article series follows a girl named Dasani and how she struggles with this economic condition, etc.

This is absolutely some of the finest journalism I've seen in years. While long, the five articles are worth your time. Please take some time, sit down, and read these. It is eye-opening and convicting as to how we treat those who have less than us.
