Homeless woman's plea to Obama draws flood of support

This story has touched millions of citizens in America. The story explains how a 61 year old woman and her son are living out of a truck dying for a place to stay. As a college student who has never been threw an economic struggle this story really helped me put a visual to the economic distress. The same distress that has been talked about everywhere around the nation. As a college student I have been somewhat sheltered from the economic situations, but this really help me see exactly the kind of problems that are occuring.

This woman just wants a place to stay, the things that me and my colleagues sometimes take for granit. Although she is just one of the many people who are feeling the struggle right now. The media hs made her the face of the recession. She represents homelessness, and unemployment all in one. She represents the veterans of this country it was her hard work that helped the nation get to where it is today. This same veteran in life has no where to lay her head.

To every bad story there can be a good ending. Many people in america have stuck together and offered funding to help this woman find a place to stay. This shows me that America really believes in Unity and there are some good people left in the world.
