The Street Kids of San Francisco
San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury neighborhood straddles Buena Vista Park and Golden Gate Park, and has strong roots in rebellion, music, art, and love. Its location and history have caused it to become one of the top stopping points for transient youth. These youngsters live as nomads, often traveling between cities, and are disliked by general society.
However, these kids are often kind, creative, troubled, and have a right to live as they choose. They're usually on the move but I wanted to know more about them, where they came from, and where they hope to be.
Because they're faced every day with resistance, it's difficult to gain their trust. But often times all it takes is a smile, respect, and recognition that they're human, too.
