I am appalled at the mention of comparison. Who are we to assume that a "section 8" person has no belongings of worth? Heirlooms, family history, photographs...things that are irreplaceable are lost in these situations. You cannot put a price on the anxiety and helplessness that results from such a tragedy either. That I believe is where the system fails and exactly what the author is speaking about. That feeling of security is lost and then compounded by "relief" being non-existent. I know friends that were hard effected by the economic downturn. They are not reprobates or drug addled losers. They are hard working people with real life issues trying to heal and still survive on a daily basis.
