My freind is 62 yrs of age had 4 strokes, and was forced by the goverment to live in a relatives basement, for lack of money, she got disability, but not enuff to pay rent or utilities or food. Public housing swept her under the rug.She was forced to live with no heat or bathroom while in her family's house. Very little food. She is a beautiful sole,a gorgous lady,but because she has been to sick to care for herself and the nasty people she was forced to live with, plus babysit constantly, her family has kicked her out of the house her parents owned, I found her living in a barn with no running water, or no bathroom facilities and still no heat. No way to prepare food. No vehicle to get any other place. Her mere $416. a month is not enuff to live on. It takes that to pay someone gas money to take her back and forth to doctor, and for her medication. I have to stop now just wanted to vent on this issue, it ways on me so heavily.I have prayed and am asking all of you to do the same for her. I have helped all I can, I too am on SSI and thats very little.Thank you all for reading this, Im sure there is more out there being abused I only touched on her situation.

BLESS YOU for your kindness and bringing the issue into the light! All things for a reason! Though her road has been rough it is my belief that the woman is a beacon of light and a call to us all, she has inspired love and compassion in complete strangers. That is QUITE an accomplishment in our world, and for that I believe she will be delivered.
