A homeless traveler

As I walked along Santa Monica Ocean Blvd. filled with tourists from around the world, I saw this homeless person asleep in broad daylight with an American flag blanket covering his face. Almost on every park bench there were other homeless individuals who slept on park benches. For millions, this is their American experience, and my photo illustrates the need for us to address this serious issue.
