But is it really so? Even after you give them “a shelter from the elements, or three square meals a day, or a mailing address” too, it doesn’t make them have a home. They still stay homeless, because the definition of the word is taken wrong by people like us. Anna Quindlen goes into the depth of definition of the phrase “being homeless”. A “home is where your heart is”, and giving one a place to live doesn’t give him a place which is only his and his everything.
To escape these conditions slaves also needed some sort of shelter and a place to sleep, but there was little to be found, “old and young, male and female, married and single, drop down side by side, on one common bed, -- the cold, damp floor.” Slaves couldn’t even escape there tough lives in sleep.
