Meant extra compassion.
Because they are not in a stable situation. And extra care at least helps people feel a bit better through turbulence.
You word your questions in a way that implies some strange premises. I was wrong to say homeless people are better than the housed... I take that back
They are not in a category of their own separate from us.
