Homeless are People, Like You

All homeless are lazy bums, drug dealers, criminals ...right?  Isn't that what lots of people think, the people who don't want to help them, the people who say feeding them a hot meal will only promote more laziness and dependency?  And because they're all drug dealers, criminals you should be afraid them and wipe out their homes (areas where they collect to live under bridges, vacant lots etc.).  How often I've read such things on facebook and if you've not heard these sentiments from people, read articles supporting these statements and others I'd be surprised.

Meet Anthony Mendez, who as a 9th grade teen lived with his 3 siblings and his mother in South Bronx.  His best friend was shot, and a year later his family evicted from their home end up in a shelter.  Scary and demoralizing no doubt for this kid and his family.  He had to get up at 4:30 in the morning in order to get enough buses to get to school from the shelter.  I wasn't able to post the full story here, but do encourage you all to follow the link below to read his amazing and inspiring story and how he'll be The First Ladies Guest at the State of Union.

Please remember this story, and or the story about Leo Grand I posted HERE the next time you read or hear about all homeless being lazy, and criminals.  Please enlighten those that make these statements.   When someone asks you why you knit, or crochet and donate your gifts of kindness and Christian Love remember these success stories and keep your hands busy caring for others.  YOU are apart of something that truly does matter.  Thank you all, please keep up the good work.

  1. A lot of people in the USA could be only a paycheck away from being homeless.

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
