Shantytowns Springing Up Around the Nation

In other news that the Second Great Depression is upon us, Shantytowns, similar to Hooervilles of the first Great Depression, are popping up around the country.  With homelessness on the rise, people have no where else to go.  Cities are stepping in to supply portable toilets and security but the homeless keep coming.  There are no easy or quick answers and as depressing as this news is, there still seems to be a silver lining…it sounds like people in these villages are banding together and making the most of a horrible situation.  While darkness brings violence and crime, it seems that many of the residents still have hope…both that they will see better days and in their fellow man.  At least that’s encouraging.
