The Last Word: Preparing for an Uncertain Future

One day, when I was selling Street Sense, a thought occurred to me. What will happen to the homeless in the future? How will we survive?  

In today’s technological world, full of computers and other electronic devices, how can we manage? Most of the homeless do not know much about computers. How will we keep up with society?  

To make matters even more difficult, everything changes every six months or so. It is really hard to stay on top of every new development.  

In the future, will life get even harder for us? What type of life will we live? I ask this type of question to people and most have no clue. A few act suspicious as if they know something but are afraid to answer.  

So I continue to wonder: should homeless people be worrying about this or should we just go on, business as usual. I, for one, am trying to invest in myself and save as much money as I can so I can better prepare for the future, whatever it brings. My advice to other homeless people is to do the same.
