I lived on the street for 48 hours

  • Published on May 12, 2019
  • What would you do if you lost everything? Ammar decides to live on the streets of LA for 48 hours in hopes gain a better appreciation for the simple things that he takes for granted in life.
    All proceeds from this video will go to www.safeplaceforyouth.org to provide care and support to youth experiencing homelessness.
    * Ammar was by no means trying to simulate homelessness or pretend like he knows what being homeless feels like, he was just trying to deprive himself of everything and see how he'd handle it.

    Tbh I take having a parent for granted. I mean haven't seen my mom in 14 years so whenever a friend talks to me about him or her having a fight with their mom I'm always like apologize, at least you have a mother to apologize to. So I half know that having parents can be taken as granted but now ever since me and my sister have to do everything alone you really see how something like having parents can be taken as granted its not like we never did anything when he was there it's just that now we both really see how much he actually did while we were hanging out with friends or what not.
    Always apologize to your family members... It may be hard and of course it is totally fine to argue with siblings or parents but always remember that one day they won't be there and if your last moment with them was a fight than you will always hate yourself for that stupid argument. I haven't seen my mom since I was 3 years old but that doesn't mean I don't care if she dies. Of course I could visit her but because if what she has done I don't want to but I would be sad if she dies

    Was this prior to Ramadan? Cause I think if u did it in Ramadan it'd have been easier like u won't have to worry about food or water anyway in the morning u know.. Loved the video and I'm actually considering doing this for a day I don't think it's a good idea to do in Egypt tho 😅

    This might never be read and I hate writing TheXvid comments for that exact reason, but I will say screw that and write one any way. I'm an 18 year old highschool student living in Pennsylvania and have I got an idea for you. We want to seek discomfort so we must find what gives the ability to not be afraid and strip that away for a second. So many people in this world will try anything ONCE. That's not always the best. This mentally leads to a lot of people never doing that thing again. Weather it's the person who nearly drowned as a kid and now hates the water, the person who hurt themselves during a sport and says they can never go back, or even just getting food poisoning and now hating that food you ate. We can change this. Let's make a video where you guys do all your most hated moments of Yes Theory again. Obviously you don't have to go back to all the same places with them being so far away (all though I wouldn't put it past you guys). It would be more creation montage of past events. If you're up to it you could even try recreating some of the hardest moments of your life. I have personal experience with doing this kind of thing. Love the vids. Love the ideals. Love all around. Hope you read this. I would kill to hear from you guys

    When I was 19 I was homeless for 6 months, had no phone no car no nothing after getting kicked out of home. I found an old guitar on the road that I used to busk for money which was used to get me a cell phone. I then managed to get me a job using that cell phone , and after that managed to save up to pay bond for a flat. I now own a growing apparel business and regularly visit homeless to feed them.

    Why does having a bottle out of the trash can make you or start your representation of “homelessness” you’re kinda annoying I got 5 minutes in before I wanted to slap yo ass like you’re the dumbest person I’ve met you live in LA but don’t know how to resource? There’s hundreds of places you could of tried. I commend some of this because it’s not easy but this is like a suburban kid who was sooon fed trying to show his way he’d be homeless lol that’s what this should have been called
