This meeting is open to the public.
4/11/2014-11:02- Last night at St. Anthony’s Catholic church, I performed a poem I had written called “Home”. Most of the times when I perform, I’m able to control my emotions on stage. Last night I failed, I have lost so much in the last year and a half, clothes, my beloved cat, and a woman I was going to marry. Most of the time I have lost myself, so much so I had even contemplated my death. That was then, now I have God directing my life, my writings, and my cause for the homeless.
4/4/2014-2:18pm- My fight against being homeless continues every day. Some might say give up what have you gained? I’m making people aware of homeless problem in Quad Cities and in the state of Iowa. I have told people if I have to I would be a martyr for a homeless bill of rights and living act. I’m tired of seeing with mental issues on the streets and not receiving any professional, just because they’re homeless. Bullshit! I’ll walk down 3rd and fourth street in Davenport, Iowa and see abandoned building just standing idle without any occupants, no chance of being occupied ever. Hey Mr. Owner why don’t you donate these building to a church so they can can convert them to a homeless shelter, alcohol/drug addiction centers, a day room, educational/employment training facitly, and a soup kitchen. Help your Quad Cities cure the homeless epidemic.
Once a street warrior wandered about
A crimson sun rises on a fresh day
Magic showers from the heaven above
God says enough is enough
All of mankind who ever desired a home
Forever has a home
Hunger and illness is nevermore
Families once separated are reunited
Spite is replaced by love forevermore
Tears are replaced by smiles and laughter
God shows his awesome love
4/3/2014-2:57pm. I received an email fron U.S. Representative Dave Loesback, Iowa’s second district. His reply to my email is I have his ear and support in my fight against homelessness. My goal is to speak to the Iowa state legislature in Des Moines, Iowa for fifteen minutes.
