We need to do better. P wrote this comment to my blog and it is heartbreaking –
Beaumont,Tx. I have had heath problems for the last 10 years yet I have managed to hardly ever miss work. Because of my health I have only managed to get a little more than minimum wage. My wife and I barely manage on a monthly basis as it is (no insurance). Anyone who has ever had to buy meds with no ins. can surely relate to that. In the two months prior to mandantory evacuation for both Gustav and Ike … I had a heart attack and quad. bypass. We were totally broke and stuck in Paris Tx. when they finally started letting people come back to Beaumont. Thankfully a very nice person wired us some money to get home. Other than that person’s generosity we have received (1) debit card from Texas workforce with a whopping $5 dollars on it.
It is incredibly difficult to understand how some people can be so insensitive. There REALLY ARE people who REALLY need help. And yes I understand that there ARE people who just take advantage of and abuse the things that were meant to help the persons that REALLY need help.
I sure don’t know the answer ….. I guess if I did I would have a great job and maybe wouldn’t be writing this.
I just feel that no matter what I do or have done in life I couldn’t even buy a break if I had the money.
Just please be aware that there are SOME really GOOD people in this world …. and SOME of them REALLY NEED HELP.
