Homeless in south Korea
As one of the richest countries in the world, South Korea's homeless people were prevalent at Soul Station in Seoul. I am drawn to ones on the street who have fallen from family, jobs or having shelter. Homelessness and poverty is part of human drive to live on.
I had friend who was nine years old and in the third grade. I watched him walked house to house in the morning until he arrive at my place ,asking for a scoop of rice. My mom always gave him a big scoop! When I saw my friend at my door steps, I was sad and lost for words. Words could not describe how I felt about poverty.
