I think the whole video shows a very important message that we need to start taking a bigger awareness in as a society. There are so many people that look down on our soldiers because of the things they have to do or done. I feel many Americans do not appreciate who they have to stand up for them since they wont do it themselves. There's so much negativity and I believe that really needs to change. These men and women are fighting for our country, they need to be welcomed home. People need to be patient and understanding when a soldier returns home. They need to remind them how much they are loved and how it will be okay. Returning veterans should have more job opportunities compared to what they are given. They should not have to be homeless and have every door slammed in their face. I think there should be some type of organization that gives them a temporary home and a job to help them rejoin the life of being a civilian. Sort of like how so many people are on welfare when they don't need to be. That money could be going to a soldier that actually did something for our country besides get the easy way out and live off the system. Now this isn't bashing the people who actually need to be on welfare. Just the ones that abuse the system.
In Holding On, the lifestyle they live is rather interesting. Its like a little society all in its own. I never thought about how they received the name of a hobo and being above a bum. I just always thought of them as homeless people. If I was in this situation I would try to go back to my family or friends for help. I know my family would never let me live on the streets and they would help me get back on my feet.
