Rachel of Jonathan Kozol's book, "Rachel and Her Children: Homeless Families in America," lives in a rundown hotel with her four children. According to Kozol, homeless people are considered untouchables. Rachel wonders how can people raise money for starving people in South Africa when she contends, "We are the World," but people don't want to help the homeless right here in the states.
