[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1oSqugphC5k]YouTube - HBO Documentary Films: Homeless: The Motel Kids of Orange County Trailer (HBO)[/ame]
A latest special documentary on HBO, about homeless kids living in motels in the O.C. Most of the kids live in motels that are within walking distance of Disneyland but most of the kids have never stepped foot in. The closest thing they get to being in Disneyland, is just watching the fireworks every night from across the street(s). The empty parking lots that surround Disneyland at night, is the playground for them!
Makes you realize how some of us are thankful and when a kid who just wishes to have a home, is heartbreaking to watch. It originally aired a few days ago, so check out the link to see when it's on again, or if you have HBO on request.
The film follows (at times), a working mother who's been working at Disneyland for 2 years and still lives in a motel.
