So, when Poets United gave us the writing prompt ‘home’ for their Thursday Think Tank two different thoughts came to mind. One was from my sappy, romantic heart, which is this:
My home is
of your heart
The other response comes from my bleeding heart:
Some food for thought:
1. There are approximately 6.1 Million vacant houses In America
2. Approximately 3.5 million people are likely to experience homelessness in a given year
(Now the thinking part)
3. So, what’s wrong here?
(Vacant house statistics from blog.wsj.com 11/5/11, Homelessness statistics from National Law Center on Homelessness and Poverty)
