Just one more thought before I go back to packing, has anyone read "Captains and the Kings?" I remember almost freaking out years ago when I first read this and thinking, man this is totally plausible, but really... when all of the loans for all of the money is called in, who really has it? It actually is supposed to be a dramatic novel which might even be considered kind of "chicky" by some, but by golly...
I just wish I could reach out and hug everyone with their heart wrenching stories and help them with the words, "It will be OK." I have been known to be a bit of a spitfire, but I can be soothing, also. And that spitfire comes back out when I say let us all be in agreement and band together and shout, to paraphrase an old movie: "We will make it! As God is our witness we will all make it through this!" And for those realizing much of this is financial woes and find no comfort I just wish I could yell up at the sky and make the heavens rain down money. If there is no other comfort, hopefully we all can find at least one thing to be grateful for.
LOL... hoot was just another exhange for another four letter word, perhaps? Since we are a public forum I thought the use of "ugh" and "hoot" might be more appropriate but I do have some sailors in my woodpile.
Yes, on this site we are all hurting in one way or another. This site is mainly for helpful suggestions and words of comfort, all of which I have received. I, too, if ever I find myself in a strong enough financial position will remember these times and will try to reach out and help, expecially to women and children because when we consider it from a historical point of view, were rather late in the timeline to move into positions of power and money that would enable us to stand alone without the help of a husband or "Daddy." I feel your pain as I have been told that had I never left a mainly verbally abusive relationship. I would not be in the mess I am in. When it got physical, I hit the door, wanting out so bad and rather cleanly I took nothing but my car and some clothes. Silly me???? (Please forgive the run on sentences since things are getting rather emotional in my neck of the woods.)
If there is anyone out there who has some tips for the homeless, please read this full post. Please keep in mind my daughter and I have no funds and no one who can take us in. The United Way, Salvation Army, Catholic Charities, etc in this area are swamped and offer nowhere to turn. 1. What can a person do for a forwarding address if one cannot afford a PO box and will I be able to vote in the fall elections? (My daughter does not trust anyone we know to have mail forwarded to due to circumstances too long to explain.) 2. If we decide to borrow my daughter's boyfriend's junk car to live in where are the best places to park and could we somehow rig a plastic container on the top to store some items? 3. If we somehow qualify for HUD, how long would it take to actually help us out in any way? (The reason we have not applied for this before is my brother who is 1100 miles from here thought he could possibly get a loan and could help move us there but just recently found out he was denied.) This is just a few things I can think of and any suggestions would sure be appreciated. Thank you!
Your story is so heartbreaking! I don't know about this first hand but have you ever contacted the National Cancer Institute? The site listed below starts out with "Resources for Financial Assistance for Patients and Their Families." You are in our prayers.
Good Morning and best wishes to all. I know there is so much sadness and so many horrendous situations going on with people, so I hope I don't offend anyone with my worry about my animals. Does anyone know the best agency or who to contact who could take two pampered kitties since we are definitely being evicted and still have not finalized where we are going? One has been our baby for 6 years and the other for 4. They are good boys and we can't help but love them so. Thank you.
You must be so frightened but you might consider contacting the March of Dimes for assistance with your little one and here is the link for Alabama's aid to needy families, below. Not meaning to be nosy but did they tell you why your family was cut off from food stamps? That seems so heartless!
I feel for you and your babies and hope and pray that something good will happen for you! Here is an interesting article on people falsely convicted of crimes:
Well, my daughter and I begin the last part of the rollercoaster ride since my company closed down. A "representative" from the vulture Oklahoma company who purchased our house for non-payment of back taxes knocked on the door wanting us to get on out. He said that now that they have title they do not have to go to court to get an eviction date set up. He said he would beg his company to give us 30 days. Just thought I would put it out there for anyone going through or facing the same thing to know what they might expect. God bless everyone and thank you for all of your kindnesses.
It is DEFINITE, not a who knows and I don't mean to be rude, but the 99er's are definitely not included in the current unemployment bill H.R 4213. If it is finally passed it will only extend the dates through until the November 30th that one can apply for another tier past their first one so they can receive the 99 weeks that so many others have exhausted. Could it be that so many of the so called millions that have exhausted their 99 weeks don't understand this and that is why there is so little protest? Once again I hate to sound rude but here is the site that explains exactly what this bill is about and there are currently no other bills in regard to unemployment proposed or in the making. The word needs to be spread and exhaustees or 99er's need to face the reality that they are left out in the cold, no if, and or buts about it!
