Charles participated in a Homeless Immersion Experience at Longwood University in Farmville.  Here are his thoughts from that event.

I am always interested in anyone whose willing to bring awareness to the homeless situation. What struck me as odd was the age of the kids that were interested. I ask one of the students were there any areas of congregation of the homeless and the response was no. Where’s this interest coming from if the problem isn’t in their area? We have this problem staring us right in the face and the city acts like it really doesn’t exist.

I think it’s a shame that people who don’t see the problem everyday care more about it than the city where the problem exists.
