Homeless people > you & me
It is good.¬† Psyched about Birthday Bash on 10/2.¬† It's gonna be a magical afternoon/evening at Heritage Park.¬†
I just saw another homeless guy on Woodruff Road with his cardboard sign.¬† These poor people.¬† I love their will power!¬† When society and life took a proverbial dump on them, they said oh no you didn't!¬† I'm sure they sat there in Falls Park down and out and thought, "They can take my house, they can take my car, but they will never take away my freedom!"¬† While some lemmings run to get a paper and look through the classified ads for jobs-these folks are rebels, martyrs even!¬† They said they are too good to go work at the car wash!¬† Too good to work fast food!¬† But not too good to express their freedom of speech!¬†
Like the great American frontiersman placed on a pedestal at Disney World, these warriors live off the land!¬† They scramble to find a piece of cardboard.¬† Like Billy The Kid, they probably steal....a Sharpie!¬† And with that they are ready to prepare their message for the people!¬† "WILL WORK FOR FOOD!"¬† "OUT OF WORK, PLEASE HELP!"¬† They stand out there in the heat, sometimes the rain.¬† Some of the more rambuncious rebels will walk up the shoulder of the road holding the sign where you can see it.¬† While others dare to not look you in the eye.¬† Why?¬† Because they don't have to, damn it!¬† And if they want to bring their sickly, malnourished dog they will, because they can!¬† Bet you can't take your pet to work.¬†
Let's face it folks, these people are the real backbone of America!¬† So, next time you pick up your phone and pretend to talk to someone so you don't have to¬†look them in the eye, stop.¬† Reach down into your drink holder and throw that 83 cents at them.¬† These amazing fixtures of American society will snap up each coin faster than anyone with the last name Steinberg or Ellenburg.¬† And while you go to your pitiful 9-5, these winners will stand outside for 12 hours a day earning upwards of $8.72 per day!¬† Respect the homeless, real American heroes.
