Living under a bridge doesn't stop this homeless woman from staying positive

  1.  
  2. This video reminds us of how fragile a world we live in and that at any time any one of us is 2 steps away from stepping on a land mine period. I volunteer feeding the homeless once a month and I see this all the time. We feed around 300 people, 200 are addicts, 60-70 have mental issues but there are always 10-12 that's speak perfect, look like your typical well educated person and are there because of a land mine they stepped on. Those few lots is the reason I keep going.
     
  3. God bless you ElCubano and may your generosity be rewarded many times over. It's not an easy task to volunteer and weed through those that won't help themselves, and those that can't.
     
  4. Sadly, despite our nation's great wealth, it is far easier to wind up on the street after stepping on one of these "land mines" in America than within most western democracies.
