Sadly, this is kinda par for the course sometimes. Instead of getting the help they need, some homeless people get kicked by the system again and again until they feel they're in such a tight box the only way out is to End It All. I know the thought crossed my mind during my own bout with homelessness.
It doesn't have to be this way, but it is. I'm reminded of the recent story out of LA where ambulance drivers were caught dumping homeless patients on Skid Row. What is the rationale for dumping people right back into the very situation they're so desperately trying to escape? When did it become okay to throw people right back to the sharks of poverty and homelessness when it's clear they need help escaping?
Saddest of all, why am I not surprised something like this has occurred in Guilford County?
I m going to market with my own refreshment. Its called Blood. Dont got a great taste, dont look that well neither but its flying off the shelves none the less. MY key market is Jingo-ists and War mongerers.
Im sorry if I m upset,and sound bitter but hey the kid across the street died in Iraq. He was only 21.
I belive that many of the injustices that occur on our streets, and on streets around the world in our name are directly each of our faults. I think that it is the easy way out to point the finger at the government or the corporations without examining what we do, say, or think. Look in the mirror. That person looking back at you has tremendous power. Practice what your preach, because everything that you do matters. One person has never changed the world by themselves. If you are disenchanted, find those that feel the same way and do something productive about it. Ok, I am starting to feel like a run-on bumper sticker. Later
