thanx for commenting Rage.
well i wouldnt know how to reply to it myself. lol. but i understand where your coming from tho. Of all the things i fear in life ( mostly sharks , alligaters and huge fricken spiders.....yuck) Homelessness is one of my biggest realistic fear. i feel sorry for alot of homeless people especially when i have no clue how they got there. in a sense your right, alot of it is giving up. some here in Pa are substance abusers oh a high degree that tore they life apart, alchoholics, people that rather live on the streets cause they either dont have anyone to go to, family issues and some just refuse to even try to work and rather panhandle for money. i spoke with a homeless guy once when i was a volunteer at a shelter giving out food and the guy told me when i asked why he was homeless, his reply was simply " because i choose to..no taxes and bills " . i am such an advocate to stand against homelessness in america but when i heard that from him it made me take a deeper look as to why some folks "choose" to be homeless.
this guy rather get free food, water and then panhandle for coffee, drugs, liquor and refuses to get a job when we was trying to help those people who were homeless due to fires and loosing everything and not having family to go live with. thats something right there that keeps me determined even more not to ever just give up. you hit the nail on the head with that my friend. i am sure too those who are have many reasons why they are , but the key thing is to never ever give up and try your damnedest to live a comfortable life with shelter.
