Homeless Children

I ran across this story about homeless children in the New York Times:

As I discussed in my September 3 post, I think it is important to have stories and statistics concerning poverty and misfortune published on a more frequent basis. While they are certainly disheartening, it is far better to have awareness of the trends and circumstances regarding poverty and related issues than to be ignorant of them, and pretend they don't exist.

It is important to be aware of (and effectively act upon) the societal impact of this period of economic weakness, and homeless children is but one example.
