Edward and Amanda
Poverty What is poverty -people who are poor and live on the street and have no family, no food to eat, they live poverty We think homeless people are enjoing themselves because really they choose to leave home.They should be free. There should be homes for homeless people,but they should have the right to stay on the street if that’s what they want. Some people choose to be the way they are,but some have no choice.Some are homeless because of drinking or drugs.Some just won’t listen to there parents and won’t obey their rules.Somepeople just can’t afford a home, it ’s not their fault.
Definition of poverty: When one lacks a usual or socially exceptable amount of money or material possesions. Poverty is said to exist when people lack the means to satisfy their basic needs. 1985 57000 people used the service 1998 180000 people used the service 123000 more people used the service in 1998 compared to 1985 70% of those serveyed thought kids choose to be homeless.

Conclusion We thought at first that maybe they wanted help,but some homeless people don’t. Some of them have no choice but some of them do. From all the stories we read some were sad and some just spoke the truth.Some people just deserved what happened to them.We still think that no one should be on the street, little or big it doesn’t matter. We didn’t know about poverty until now and it changed us in a weird but civil way. Now we know that some people need help. If we could help these unfortunate people we would,in a second.But,we’re just kids.We say STOP POVERTY.
