    This was excellent, thanks. Reminiscent of a lot of writing Jonathan Kozol has done on poor children in the education system.

    I hope Dasani gets out of the shelters and into a permanent house. I feel so sad about the homeless children and grateful for my upbringing, albeit modest; at least my parents had a home and stayed together. It seems like their lives depend on chance, just the smallest hiccup in the system can cause so much misery. Gah I need to give some money to the food bank.
