You might get it.
We’ve all heard that old bromide before. Many times. Apparently not often enough yet for me to remember it, however. In a way, I’m getting part of what I wished for and now I can’t handle it. In brief, I need some help. I hope that help is you.
The purposes of this blog are to raise awareness of the homeless community and our many problems. To gather some sympathy and a little help in the form of money, or clothing, or assistance, sometimes just being treated like a human being.
Albeit I finally have a comfortable home to live in, I’ll always be a homeless guy as long as there are legal Americans without a roof, a bed and food to eat.
Slightly more advanced on my wish list is participation. The involvement of the readers to assist the many of us who are the homeless to fight our way out of this quagmire. I’ve also asked you for suggestions. Ideas. Things that will be useful and beneficial to the 4,500 homeless people in San Diego County and, in a larger view, the 4,500,000 homeless across the country.
In small part, as that’s where all big things begin, I’m getting what I asked for. The problem is, I don’t have the physical or monetary wherewithal to take advantage of it. The cancer I’ve battled since 2009 has left me weak and my personal dollar supply doesn’t provide me any wiggle room.
Suggestions are coming in about giving the homeless rides to different places. Finding them a place to stay in the daytime, or somewhere to sleep at night. Showers and a means of doing laundry. Community service programs where the homeless can do something to give back, working hand-in-hand with volunteers.
Boys and girls, I ain’t got the juice to do it. No physical energy left, and I don’t know if I’ll ever get it back. I hear ideas about driving homeless people places but I have to confine even my personal errands to a couple runs per week. I can barely afford to drive to the grocery store, much less buy anything they sell.
Bottom line, I need some help. If I don’t get it, things will stagnate. The good ideas are now coming in and I can’t use them because I’m too tired all day long to do anything. Are you up to providing some of the help I need? If so, click here and let me know. Be sure you give me an e-mail address so I can reach you with a reply.
I’m just sayin’.
