HOMELESS

 

 

Countries with the homeless population 

My name is Peter Spyros Goudas, and if you google this name, it will link to my biography; to read up my story you will know that I was once homeless when arriving in Canada in 1967. 

There are many reasons why people become homeless. We are not here to judge them.

Our business is to make certain that we do our part without criticizing them.

That’s the last thing they need. Even if you ask the question” You may not get the answer. Some of them have lost touch with their own identity, to begin with.

I wish to inform you that the United Nations, The world health organization, Unicef, The united way, the Salvation Army, etc to name a few, can do absolutely NOTHING for these unfortunate people.

They need to be fed immediately, this instant.
They need to have a place to sleep right now, not tomorrow.
These women need to be able to clean up themselves TODAY, not next week. 
You see them sleeping on corners in big high traffic cities, some are accompanied by their loving pets.
I read in the comments section as people wondered all sorts of things such as:
How did they pay for tattoos?
When was the last time they had a bath? 
How can they afford a pet? Etc.
Why they are not quit smoking?

Please do not engage in criticizing or bad-mouthing them.

One day it may become your turn to face the same situation.
Will you have their courage and resilience? 

Instead of spending $ 50-100 for a big steak with dessert and fancy wines in restaurant outings, reflect for a moment on how a few dollars can help one or two of them.

Please refrain from asking them to follow you to a nearby restaurant as some of the restaurant managers do not allow them in. 

There are many reasons why they can’t get a job and so many more why they do not have a place to sleep.

Lawyer: Mike Papantonio talks with Brigida Santos about why San Diego California has been arresting its homeless population.

I am not asking you to save the world, therefore, if you see one of them on a corner of the sidewalk while passing by, open your heart and be privileged by giving them something; while not expecting anything in return. 

Do not even expect their gratitude and thanks. Please remember, your kind-heartedness will be noticed by God and you will be generously and abundantly rewarded somehow.

Street bum

Standing off the street, on a corner all alone, As if he’s hiding, his chagrin in the dimness
 
Should he be blamed, being born poor to the bone, Is he to blame. if he’s a wreck…
If he’s a wreck of life’s grimness
 
[Refrain:]
Oh, street bum. without a loved one without a mother, or home to keep from
Oh street bum, inside the blizzard’s raging wind a sparrow stripped plum
Oh street bum
 
Yet even he, maybe someday he will come through in finding a dream, a warm bosom, just a haven in finding two arms, to bestow him wings anew and two sweet lips, to bring him back…
to bring him back his courage even
 

This is not a laughing matter

While viewing several of the event's pictures, we noticed that there were no signs indicating or stating Mr. Goudas Spyros Peter Goudas as the food donor.

We asked him, how homeless people knew that he is responsible for their meals.

Mr. Spyros Peter Goudas answered,      " People don't have to know that, only God Knows".

How poor people survive in the USA 

Homelessness, hunger, and shame: poverty is rampant in the richest country in the world.
Over 40 million people in the United States live below the poverty line, twice as many as it was fifty years ago.
It can happen very quickly. Many people in the United States fall through the social safety net.
In the structurally weak mining region of the Appalachians, it has become almost normal for people to go shopping with food stamps.
And those who lose their home often have no choice but to live in a car.
There are so many homeless people in Los Angeles that relief organizations have started to build small wooden huts to provide them with a roof over their heads.
The number of homeless children has also risen dramatically, reaching 1.5 million, three times more than during the Great Depression in the 1930s.

China's war on poverty

China has brought over 700 million people out of poverty through economic development. But over 100 million people remained intractably poor, trapped in poverty due to isolation, low education, and infirmities.
After gathering and organizing materials for half a year, the American-Chinese co-production team of "China's Poverty Alleviation at the Grassroots" immersed themselves into the local lives of China's rural poor in remote mountainous areas. With "targeted poverty alleviation" being the main topic, five simple but touching stories personalize the process and depict the measures of combating poverty.

Evicted After Wife Died, Now Homeless 

Simba (street name) met his wife fishing. I love that. Sadly, Simba's wife was very sick from complications with diabetes. She needed a kidney transplant. Simba's wife was on the transplant list at USC Medical Center, but while she was waiting for a donor, her health got worse. The emotional stress of being her caregiver was hard enough; when his wife died, Simba became severely depressed. He started to self-medicate with marijuana to help him sleep. This was four years ago, and people's views of marijuana were much different then. Today, it probably would not even be an issue, but Simba's landlord used his cannabis use to evict him.
