Homeless letter.

Extracts from this document...


Homeless letter Dear Michelle I got your letter today. You seem in a really bad way. Everything seems to be wrong. Running away just isn't the right answer!! What do you think its going to be like out there on the streets? You say you've hardly got any 'dosh', you think you'd survive begging everyday? Think you'd actually get far? You'd be sleeping rough on the streets! You think that's paradise??

This past experience has just changed my point of view. Before I went on the streets I thought that I could live without the T.V. but now, I know what it feels like.

Your best friend Naila Parveen ...read more.
