March 27, 2014-2:07pm- Bureacracy is the larget obstacle standing before the homeless and dignity. Politicians won’t help you unless it benefits them. Before election time they will tell you anything to win your vote. Alas as far as the homeless goes we we aren’t really recognize. Weren’t even seen. I ask all of the homeless people to stand up for their rights. Just because were invisible doesn’t mean we’re invisible.
I would like to cordially offer you an invitation to attend a homeless round table at the Center on March 25, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. The Center is located at 1411 Brady Street, Davenport, Iowa, 52802 across from the St. Johns Methodist Church. We will discuss possible alternative plans to deal with the homeless situation. Alderman Bill Boom is scheduled to attend. The director of the Center will be there. I will invite other directors, coordinators, and pastors who deal daily with this issue. People who are homeless will also be invited to voice their concerns. I will be the leader of the round table and everybody will be respected. I hope you will attend. I will wait for your reply.
Sincerely Gary Susich
Down thru the hallow centuries
Mankind has forgotten their own
Turn their backs on friends, brothers, sisters, and total strangers
Why, why, Elomin, why
Are we different from others
The pigmentation of ones flesh, words we speak are from a different tongue,
And we are homeless
Alas, mankind has forgotten
Jesus Christ was also homeless
We walk the ebony streets
Trying to find our way
Strangers approach, but look away
Man without a drop of mercy
Murder his brothers and sisters down thru the years
Angels we are not, we are flawed by satan
Jesus Christ died on the cross
So man may have everlasting life
We come into this world with empty hands
We will leave the same way
Why do we wrong are brothers and sisters
Are so nieve
Do we not know
Once our number is called
Will voice our final judgement
Upon the glorious day the foregotten will be remembered
March 19, 2014-3:35 pm- My friend Harry in Missouri got funding for a shelter. A church, newspaper, television station, and some public speaking appearences moved to the people to donate the funds needed for this shelter. Missouri is poorer than Iowa or Illinois. So why can’t this happen Iowa? Why can’t the cities, citizens, and churches pull together and try to the help the homeless in Iowa?
March 18, 2014-9:38 am- Answer this question I dare you. Why does the United States of America spend billions of dollars around the world every year to fight homelessness, hunger, and sickness. Yet are so blind to the same problems hear at home. Cities in America even criminalize being homeless. Back in June, Denver, Colorado made it illegal to eat food on public or private property. Does that mean at Mile High Stadium during a Denver Broncos football game? Let me guess that only pertains to the homeless. It’s not like a homeless person has the money to buy a ticket to a NFL game. Come on America get your head out of your ass. Watch what happens when you become homeless. How does your family treat you? My family turned their backs away from me. I guess I’m the black sheep of the family. Some of my family are really religious, love on another, do unto other as you have others do to you. Wake up America, take the blinders off!
March 10,2014-12:31 p.m.- I’m continuing to prepare for the Homeless Round Table on March 25,2014. I’m inviting state officials, clergy, and the homeless. I need ask you a favor. If you have never been homeless or know somebody who has been homeless tell me your story. If you have been or are currently homeless tell us your story.
March 5, 2014-9:53 a.m.- The past week has been very busy. I’m getting arrangements made for the next Homeless Round Table to be held at the Center, at 1411 Brady Street, Davenport, Iowa. It will be held on Tuesday, March 25, 2014. I have Alderman Bill Boom scheduled. I have contacted Iowa State Senator Joe Seng, State Representative Linda Miller, US Representative Dave Loenback, US Senators Tom Harken/Charles Grassley, and US Senate candidate Bruce Bralley. I’m also contacting the director of two homeless shelters/a couple of businessmen, and a number of clergy. Those who are homeless or have been homeless are encouraged to attend. This is for you.
