I come to Street Sense for peace and comfort. When I write, I express what might be going on with me or to relate it to the world. Writing helps me escape to my little zone, where all writers try to get out a message or a story, sometimes a piece of advice.
Reader, I would like to thank you for putting your time out just for me to tell you verbally and in writing that I do appreciate your donation. Writing about stuff to keep you interested in reading Street Sense is hard. So I’m coming and keeping it 100%. Since coming here I’ve found issues within myself, sitting, listening to my thoughts and looking at what’s next. I have that opportunity to be at peace here, to think and express myself.
Some of the homeless people I come across, young and old, don’t have this place to come to, but they could if they wanted. There are a lot of problems going on in the world today — issues concerning peace, poverty and crime. Whatever is going on with you, stop and thank your higher power for seeing another day.
