My Homeless Friend Says “No One Cares”

I have a friend who is homeless.
And by homeless everyone, I mean she has been homeless since the 1990’s.
She lost everything. Her home, everything.
My friend has had an EXTREMELY difficult time of it all.
She is discriminated ALL THE TIME!
The homeless shelters she has formerly resided refuse to even help obtain transitional housing for her.
Transitional housing is where you get an apartment for anywhere from a few months to a few years.
This last shelter which is so corrupt had openings but refused to help my friend because they (the shelter staff) did not personally like my friend. It appears that this same shelter has helped 3 women actually GET INTO transitional housing. So this particular shelter I feel OPENLY DISCRIMINATES against my friend So to sum it up: If the shelter staff does not like you? You get NOTHING! Not a damn thing, in addition you WILL get kicked out onto the street! Rot in hell shelter staff! Hope karma bites such a huge hole into your ass that you feel that bite every single time in your life.
And this is America??
Today, I hung out with my friend. We ate at a Chinese restaurant, the food was real good, at lease one part of the day went well b/c my friend was so down in the dumps! Grade A fully DEPRESSED! Know what I mean?
Understandably, she is homeless currently sleeping in a motel or her car. My friend does not provide details on how she can afford to stay at even the cheapest motel & I don’t ask her. The toll of homelessness is really taking its toll on her.
She has what I would call an ill temper.
I tolerate it. She is my friend. Remember dear readers I came from a life that was HELL! if any of you have bothered to read my previous blogs.
I feel that if you are A TRUE FRIEND, then your there through the good & the bad.
Corny as this may sound thru thick & thin!
I’m mad as hell that no one helps my friend.
Her grown kids will not lift a finger to help & those two have good paying jobs.
Can’t say I care for them, I don’t give a damn what THEIR stupid reason may be.
You have a Mother living out in the streets AND YOU JUST IGNORE IT?
No way! That to me is so very totally unacceptable.
However in this Country Americans are some of the most selfish people around.
Makes me ashamed to be one.
This is one of the WORST COUNTRIES that neglect their elderly.
This is one PUNK ASS NATION!
Please PRAY FOR MY HOMELESS FRIEND here in Seattle Washington.
Because whenever I talk to my friend she always responds with the following:
“No One Cares”
It is such a tragedy.
I’m now realizing this is a Country
that really DOESN’T CARE.
All I can say to that?
Don’t worry cause one day IT MAY BE YOU.
No one is exempt from homelessness people.
So WAKE UP!
And thaw out your damn insides.
And HELP dammit.

Me: I grew up in an extremely abusive & disadvantaged family environment were both parents were really immature & their relationship messy! I was abducted by my Father at age 8 abused physically, mentally, degraded by his 2nd Wife, and I didn't see my Mother again until 4 years later, I had to risk my neck + my life to run off to seek help with the local police & this was way before there was any such laws on the books for child abuse. Think on that awhile. Had learning disabilities all throughout school by the time I graduated I learned nothing, was prepared for nothing out in the World. Think on that. Joined the United States Army right out of High School only reason I did join was that at the time there was an Army recruiter right on the High School campus & he took an interest in me. So I joined. I was really in over my head. But what else could I do? I lived with a single Mom who was emotionally unstable & I had ZERO support from anyone including the school staff + administrators. The military was hard & degrading to me as a woman but I got out with an honorable discharge. More about me: A series of dead end jobs, my mind was totally a mess after I got out of the Army, still had no support not even from the Veterans admin. My journey has been a total nightmare of: trying to find out about myself, learning about myself, how to live as an adult, all with no help. Now after long , and intensive filled journey I'm trying to get back on track with my life I want to go to school with the hope of one day attending University. I don't wish my journey on anyone. No one gave me guidance: as a child as a teen as a young adult I was all on my own! and it was real lonely , isolating, extremely frightening. Family? don't really have any. Now remember everyone I'm African American & I receive little to no respect I don't even warrant a speeding car that will slow down. "The person who sang the National Anthem sang the last note so high that no could reach it! That was intentional!" Belize from Tony Kushners play Angels In America. If you've read this far I will leave my email in case you want to leave me a msg. Those that are rude will get deleted immediately. Contact: Yogibeara425@hushmail.com
