What it is to be like homeless, no one bothering to even look at you and even if someone does , there is disdain in his/her eyes . Richard Gere, a hollywood actor went homeless for a day and what he went through, he is never going to forget. But he learnt some invaluable lessons too.

“When I went undercover in New York City as a homeless man, no one noticed me. I felt what it was like to be a homeless man. People would just past by me and look at me in disgrace. Only one lady was kind enough to give me some food. It was an experience I’ll never forget. So many times we forget how blessed we are. We should not take that for granted.
