A homeless 7-year-old who lives on the beach shows us exactly what courage looks like.

When she meets a stranger at 5:56, her story begins to unfold at 10:42...

After 7-years-old Jada lost her parents, the Department of Children and Family Services took her in. But understaffed and underfunded, Jada had few options for proper family placement.

So she ran away and lives alone on Venice Beach, making and selling stick people on the boardwalk to survive.

By following her through a day in her life, the story of who she is, why she is there, and who the man is that has come looking for her begins to unfold.

You know, IT'S FUNNY!
I see a lot of people commenting here, giving each other Likes, getting emotional and shit, trying to convince everyone else of how good hearted and humanist they are, and how inhuman the the powers that be are for not helping out enough.
What a bunch of hypocrytes!

Get Over Yourselves!

Whether you want to believe it or not, the world is the way it is because WE WANT IT THAT WAY.
Unconsciously, sure, but it's still OUR WILL that WE WANT IT that way.

Get this through your thick heads you "civilized" barbarians:
- for some families to be comfortable, other families have to be uncomfortable.

-inheritance is a useful tool for good for nothing, pathetic and lazy people who won't stand up for themselves and make their own way.
Practically every family would give their material possesions to their children if they could, and if you support that, you're making things harder for other families and you're amoral and psychopathic, because humanity tends to take the path of least resistance, and inheritance serves that purpose.

- CRAPitali$m and DUMBOcracy had its chance, its purpo$e, its benefit$.
But it's no longer useful or necessary.
$ome familie$ live and pro$per by it, other families suffer and die by it...
If you keep working and living your lives as if everything is Cool instead of doing the most Rational Revolutionary thing, don't complain about the government and don't cry about homeless little girls.

There's so much more to say about this matter, but knowing how bored, quick gratification loving, unwilling and lazy people are to read long essays that involve thinking and reasoning, I'll cut it there...
