Last week I visited to Garzon where is a close town from Pital where I’m staying. And I saw a homeless boy for the first time.
There’s no homeless people in Pital. I’ve never seen.
I’ve heard there are many homeless people in bigger cities such as Bogota, Medellin, Cali. But comparing with those big cities and Garzon, Garzon is much much smaller. So I didn’t imagine that i see a homeless kid out there.
The homeless boy was sleeping on the street right in front of a bakery shop near a bank. He seemed to be about 12 to 14. He was wearing a T-shirt, half-pants, and shoes, all clothes seemed to be unwashed for a while.
He appeared to be asleep, so I didn’t try to talk to him.
I also saw some police men were taking break at the bakery shop.
That’s the reality people just pass by him regarding like he doesn’t exist. Even police men. Why can’t they or government help even one boy?
But so far, I am one of them. Maybe I seem like one of hypocrites. At least that I could do was just leave some change under his grubby T-shirt. I feel really frustrated that I can’t do anything with this myself right now.
In this world, rich people, politicians, police officers say it’s just one of social issue with like nothing care about them, like it’s inevitable. And they do nothing. Because they don’t feel nothing, they believe they are not gonna be like them. They think they are different than having no money.
I always don’t understand, why those people who govern countries think this world could be existed for more centuries with leaving people who don’t have much income and no home, sleeping on the street, dig garbage, starve and die.
How can they abandon same humanity.
It’s the end human abandon other human.
