A Homeless Multi-millionaire’s Story

Published Wednesday, 15th August, 2018 | By Susan AKA Peacefull | Edit

In this article below it states it is about relationship and conflict, I state underlying conflict as the root cause.  I see home-less-ness in truth reflects social breakdown and in particular, breakdown of the family support systems.  It is in the erroneous perceptions of homelessness that people become judged and isolated rather than… Continue reading →
