Reading between the lines...

I believe the Stanford student's statement truly meant that he wanted his grandchildren to learn the same lesson he did from volunteering in the homeless shelter, because it was so powerful to him. I don't think he is hoping to have more homeless people, or even that his grandchildren volunteer in the exact same shelter.

Unfortunately, I do not think we will be able to solve the problem of homelessness and eliminate the need for shelters any time soon. As a matter affect with the economy the way it is at this present moment the problem will probably get worse before it gets better. That is why it is so important for us to volunteer now and take an active role in this issue.
