Introduction

´╗┐Peter Schaldemose 1.e Aflevering til d. 25/10 2012 Writting a speech Homeless speech Hello everyone and thank you all very much for showing. I am very grateful for all the support I have received, and I, by this speech, am hoping to create awareness about the unfortunate situation some people are in. Have you ever heard the expression: Before you turn away, put yourself in my place. I ask everyone to imagine oneself homeless. Before you turn away, put yourself in my place, I say to them.

Conclusion

The problem of homelessness in Denmark is a problem that can hit anyone when you least expect it. Therefore you should take this as a serious crisis that affects our society. I feel as Dane we should come together to create the solution to this homelessness problem to end a growing of homeless people, we Danes shall always think on that expression: before you turn away, put yourself in my place. I am, as you could probably imagine, a homeless myself, but I am also a member of an organization called ?House Away?. We try working on new ideas on how we could do something for the homeless. Our organization is out to sell our newspaper. And profits go to helping the homeless. Hope you would join in and help the homeless. Remember expression, before you turn away, put yourself in my place. ...read more.
