I hear what you're saying, Noon'. I had a long conversation with a trucker one time; he told me all about growing up in the foster care system in Alabama and about how you just get moved nearly constantly and never even get to know your case worker. Then when you turn 18, he said, you get aged out and they are done with you. Forever.
He said he went into the army, but today you probably couldn't even do that if there has been any sort of trouble with drugs or crime.
Made me really stop and think.
