Think for a moment about the last time that you didn’t need a place to sleep at night. Other than choosing to sleep in a tent while camping, most of us have a difficult time remembering a time when we lacked a bed, four walls, and a roof over our head.
Shelter is easy to take for granted as long as we have it. But as soon as we find ourselves in a situation without a safe place to sleep, it is the only thing we can think about.
