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.

Look at people these days, they're careless, they don't care if a child is homeless and all alone with nobody to look up to. We should make a change in our actions FAST or else the population of homeless children will increase,it's now or never, every little thing helps. So I tell all of u ppl here to attempt to make a change in our environment and help make the world a better place!!!!
