Realistically, I do not believe that the Stanford student wants there to be homeless people in the future. However, I do believe that he wants his children to experience the same feelings of helping your fellow man. I can relate it to passing down the experiences of old to the youth in order to make better changes in the future.
Realistically, I do not believe that homelessness will be gone by the time I have grandchildren. I also believe that it is a bad to have people suffering.
The difference between advocacy and volunteerism is that like Katy Lockhart said, one just treats the symptoms while the other attempts to cure the illness. Volunteering is a good thing. No, one should say different and if they do they have never been in need.
In Hinduism, they have holidays dedicated to the feeding of the poor from the higher ups. They offer some to the gods and the rest is given away. I feel that if the U.S. made a holiday or holidays to help the poor then things might not be so bad. We'll call it national homeless awareness day or something like that.
The Dhali Lama always considered himself a realist. He called himself an extreme realist. He always said that he is only a human. If one person can do it than any one can. I suggest reading the book The Open Road, Journey of the Fourteenth Dhali Lama by Iyer Pico. People tend to think that these people like Ghandi, Martin Luther King Jr., the Dhali Lama, President Lincoln, Buddha, and many other people. They think that these people were not only human. They just made a cause and stuck with it. Realistically, we all can be the change we want to see. It starts with self and moves from there.
