Students began to feel empathy for those whose situations required these difficult decisions. Here's what they said:
"We are used to so having much stuff that we can’t imagine living in two small plastic bags."
"I now know how it feels to have your whole life just in two bags."
"I learned that doing this activity was not only hard, but frustrating, so I cannot imagine what it would be like having to do this for real."
"I learned that being homeless is a very tough challenge, and I want to help the cause."
"...I can’t believe that many people have to go through this."
"If you think about it, we didn’t have to worry to much about what we brought, but real people are faced with these choices. Do I bring my water bottle and food, or do I bring my photo book filled with memories? What would you choose?"
