The below item is the introductory of a must read essay authored by Dana 
Szegedy, one of five Sterling College students who spent a night out 
together one cold rainy evening in Montpelier, Vermont during April of this 
year.

They began their education that evening in several indepth discussions 
spanning a variety of matters, including homelessness, housing, mental 
health, disabilities and related subjects while at the Another Way Drop-In 
Center before embarking out onto the streets for the night.

An Eye Opening 24-Hour Homeless Experience in Montpelier, Vermont

Question of Perception


Perception: something rarely thought of, but often used.

What is your perception of a man walking the streets at night, tired, 
depressed, ragged looking? What's your perception of a former mental health 
patient? Or a clean, wise, helpful man who happens to be homeless? Is there 
a difference between these people?

Before you say "he wanted to be homeless" or "we don't have a problem with 
homelessness here," read about my experience as well as some of what people 
who either live or have lived homeless have to say about these matters.
