Mirror Of A Homeless Person

Ever since I have common sense, homelessness (those without any place for inhabitation) has attracted my attention for many reasons. Seeing these people fill my mind with certain questions which could be answered in many ways. I bet others have the same issues in this matter.

Who are these people, where do they come from and why are they living in those conditions? Are they willing to change?

Homelessness is not identified with:

  • age
  • culture
  • territory
  • physical aspect
  • moral values.

Each one of these people have their own reason...their own conviction of living outside. They wake up many times in different places and go to sleep after rain, snow or sun has touched their skin.

Emotions go back and forth when homelessness approaches us or we just see them in our path. When they beg for money, food or internal war begins in between "should or shouldn't" peeling a flower with "loves me, loves me not".

Who is responsible?

Be strong!

We need to have self control and be willing to stay strong spiritually to prevent falling into a life like this. I made a research in 2007 and I was astonished at the help there are for homelessness; by christians, good people and altruists that are moved to help and be solidarity (I love this concept). Even political funds are waiting to be used in benefit of homelessness. Something is happening that they don't work properly. The money is going into somebodies pocket or the homeless just like the style. I will not label the reasons...I just say this as a fact that help does exist.

God is needed in everything, I ask your prayers for the homeless and for us to help them and be solidarity with them. We need to be part of the solution to see changes. Memorize and make it real Chapter 25 verse 35 of Matthew, says: "For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in...

Help For The Homelessness

Hope for the homeless! When we start seeing them as humans with necessities and make this into an action. You could find help by searching "Help for the homelessness" by area. Take a look at these I have linked...there is help out there and everywhere, for the homelessness. Become a volunteer in many ways to reach them and let them have at least the warm of love and respect as humans.

Help, I am homeless!

You will probably get into some difficulties as in many aspects of life...but I assure that it is worthily. Do you remember feed the hungry problems mainly in Florida? Actually my dear Froggy213 made a Hub; I encourage to read it: Feed The Hungry - Break The Law.

Blessings to all!

      Hi, Lastheart! Great read. Passionate, caring, and touching hub here. Voted up, useful, awesome and interesting. You have the wonderful gift of writing and that is so obvious. You made a perfect presentation for a situation, not a problem, that I have been concerned about for a long time. (See my hub, " . . .Will Someone Please Help Me?") and you will see "our" mutual concern. And I am glad to meet you. And FOLLOW you. I invite you to follow me, if you like, and see if you like any of my hubs, which might give you a good laugh. Sincerely, Kenneth Avery, from Hamilton, a small northwest Alabama town that looks like Mayberry on the Andy Griffith Show. Thanks for letting me share this. And I wish YOU and YOURS, a Very Safe and Merry Christmas 2011.

      True we could be next. I retired and had to go back, because weird things happened while my retirement procedure. Then when at last everything seemed right to retire...since I wasn't a teacher nor retired...bankruptcy was the solution for not becoming homeless. Soooo...Ronnie, it was not going to be my would had been for bad administration. It is still on the table that it was because I was a member of the Teachers Federation. Anyone could be homeless...with studies or without.

      Ronald Reagan said, "The homeless are there because they CHOOSE to be there."

      Attaguy, Ronnie.

      I'm certain that they also chose to end government-supported low-income housing in the 1980s that poured thousands of them onto the street. And hey, as long as we're cutting corners by playing poker with peoples' lives, let's also ('80's) close the door to 1000's more that were housed in mental institutions...

      That said, now is now. And here we are.

      More and more, people are becoming terrifyingly aware that they are only a missed paycheck or two away from that new dream home of a Maytag Washer box, and "live their lives in quiet desperation"...Yes. Let's all try to do SOMETHING!

      We could be next...

      It is a bad problem and seems to be getting worse. We must not look down on these people. I have heard some say, "why don't they get jobs?" It is a tough thing to do when you don't have an address or a phone.

      We must follow the Holy Spirit's guidance in helping. It is our duty to help.
