I did not grow up in Tucson. Instead my adolescence was spent mostly in California. I was thrown out of my home by age 16 and lived on the streets. During this time I came to the same conclusion as Mr. Austin's, people really do not care about the homeless. Since then I have straightened my life out and accomplished a number of great things. The experiences from my youth have certainly made me more altruistic. Although I don't do everything that I can to help at the moment, I do at least make an effort to help. Ultimately I would like to do more, like Mr. Austin. His efforts are exploratory and inspiring.
