American version of sesame street makes homelessness negotiable

The creators of the American edition of sesame street have in the program the issue of homelessness addressed. The pink doll Lily told Wednesday in the kindershow that she and her family have their house are lost.

“We have our own flat not more, we sleep for a while on all sorts of different places,” says Lily against Elmo in a online published video. “We live nowhere, and sometimes I wonder if we ever again have a home.”

Lily was introduced in 2011, when, in a clip that went over children who do not always know or is there food at home. “We have her story so persecuted, that children in that situation with her can identify,” explains the boss of the maker of the program, Sesame Workshop, to CNN. “We hope that we not only reach them, but that we are also others a little more understanding for this matter.”

For Lily it all turns out well in the episode. She tells later that she and her family have their own apartment.
