It’s no secret my passion in life is to advocate for the homeless in America. While my heart goes out to many causes including black lives matter, all lives matter, Cancer, abuse….it’s the homeless epidemic in this nation that really pulls at my heart strings. We are supposedly the richest nation in the world, yet why is it that anyone is homeless in America. This covid thing has really bothered me. Mainly because while we are so busy fighting with each other about which political party is right, we fail to think about the people who are homeless or the people who will soon be kicked out of their home due to lack of work and money because both parties can’t get their shit together and find a solution to this pandemic. I don’t care which party is right or wrong. I think it’s time for everyone to recognize the little people who are caught in the middle of this fighting and will soon be left living in the streets. These are real People just trying to make a living. No stocks, no investments, just your average Joe trying to get by!
I read this article about this young boy named Theo. He’s 7 years old and has been homeless since he was born. His mom seems a bit off but I’m not judging. All I know is there is absolutely no reason for this little boy to spend his life living in a tent. I can’t even imagine. What makes this story even more heart wrenching is the parents are in the midst of a custody battle during a pandemic and Theo is caught in the middle. Unbelievable. Gosh this just made my stomach sick and I have to be honest it made me cry. I cried for this little boy and for the millions of people in America who are facing homelessness with young children because we have a bunch of political feuds going on. And I’m not talking just politicians. It’s everyone of us who find ourselves fighting on Social Media. How pathetic.
The president based his entire campaign on “Making America Great Again”. I’m sorry to disappoint but based on the homelessness in the USA along with increased racism and fighting, riots, protests, bullying…I’m not sure it was ever that great to begin with and in my opinion it sure as hell hasn’t gotten “Greater”. Yell at me if you want. Attack me with comments I don’t care. My heart is in the right place and as far as my passion about ending homelessness one day, that will always be a dream of mine. I am just so done with this political chaos. I just wish it would all stop. And who knows maybe as a country we can put our opinions aside and begin coming together to find a solution to bringing peace and togetherness in this nation. A nation where we help each other. Respect one another and learn to agree to disagree if only for the sake of doing the right thing not only for ourselves but for others.
My nephew will be 7 next month. I couldn’t even imagine my sweet little Kai having to live in a flipping tent because are nation isn’t that great! That’s my opinion and my opinion only.
So how about this. We may not always agree but in the words of Todd Rundgren “we can’t play this game anymore but can we still be friends?”
Read this article about Theo. If you don’t shed a tear I’d be surprised.
