Homeless in America

February 26, 2014-10:19 a.m. I’m receiving a lot of feedback on poetry and my activism in my battle to end homelessness in America. On February 14, 2014 I performed poetry at a Valentine funding luncheon for the King Harvest Shelter in which I’m a resident. Before the luncheon my story was in the Argus-Dispatch. This past Monday my story was in the QC Times. This isn’t about me, despite what a narrow minded commenter thinks. This issue is about the whole. It’s about the 675000 men, women, and children who are homeless every night in America. It’s about the people who can’t find shelter. They sleep in abandon houses, garages, barns, and yes even outhouses. I, myself once before when I was on the streets, spent a night in a outhouse. You can find a warm meal at a free meal sight in Davenport. Medical, mental care, and perscriptions can be a little tougher to get when you are homeless and have limited funds. If you even have any money at all. People who put us down have no clue. We try to make things work, but its hard when you have limited funds, computer time, and in live in a shelter or the cold streets. Its so easy to degrade us from your warm home with all the comforts of success. You deny that we even exist. Come walk a week in our shoes, I dare you!!!

    God bless you Gary Susich! Any time I wonder if God exists I find people like you and then you affirm He does. God exists in the hearts of good people like you!
