Hello readers and fans. I hope your lives are well and pleasant. I’m glad that some of you are reading and taking my writing seriously. And I hope you’re digesting from the heart and perhaps trying to do something about this problem of homelessness.

The real core of myself as a writer is my observance of how some of the people in this DMV and the world today look at homelessness and poverty much the same as they have forever. People are still struggling, and others are still judging them for it. Somehow, people continue to neglect the fact that there are homeless men and women out here, asking for help, support and advice to guide them in the right direction.
As time ticks on, we all should learn from their struggles. Our destiny from our Creator is to do unto others as you would want them to do unto us. There are some people in this world who are honest, hard-working and good-hearted, who care about homelessness. They have decent jobs and probably make good money to take care of themselves and they additionally help others.

I see this firsthand where I work. Folks at The Daily Grill, the Post Office and some of the clubs around 19th, 18th and M streets NW. All these people are hard workers that keep the peace around the working area and support the struggling individuals that are trying to survive on the streets daily. May God bless them all for their caring support, understanding of the poverty of homelessness and support that they so willingly give. I respect and admire their contributions.

I have something to deal with within the system and you might not see me for a while if things don’t go my way. However, if the Creator blesses me with a chance to fulfill my task of redeeming and supporting fellow friends that are struggling, then I will continue writing and expressing my opinions.

Just know I love you all from the bottom of my heart. Thank you Street Sense Media for the opportunity to write in your publication and express my opinions. Thank you to all the people in the DMV and the world who have shown support for me and people in similar situations. Love you all. And thank you Mrs. Butler and Mrs. Holland, my two teachers at PG Community College, for working with me to start to achieve my GED.
