Nov 11 – Veteran’s Day

11 Nov

This video is amazing. A homeless vet gets a makeover, but the fact that there’s so many homeless vets is sad. It speaks to the fact that you go fight for this country and then they give you nothing. The guy that killed Bin Laden is dead broke. No pension because he didn’t finish his call of duty. I appreciate the effort these guys do to keep us safe. Whatever that means because most of the time we are safe. I believe in the military industrial complex and that many wars are for profit rather than peace, but that’s a rabbit hole. For now watch this vid. It’s better than anything I could have put together and although a makeover isn’t enough to fix his problems, it’s a good start. 


Nov 03 – Give Someone A Dollar Day

This guy deserved more than just one. I’m a sucker for a good headline.

Feb 28 – Sleep In Public Day

28 Feb

Not the easiest thing to do especially in cold cold Boston but it had to be done. Eli didnt like it as you can see from the video.

I did it once in Barcelona for real. Not by choice. I was legitimately homeless. No money for a hostel so I slept on a beach and I’ve never been so humbled in my life. Bottom of the barrel. I literally came minutes close to getting jumped and killed but I made it.

I don’t really sympathize too much with homeless people. I struggled a lot for what I have. I came from nothing and worked since I was 15 to get to where I’m at so I can’t really understand how someone comes to the point where they live on the street instead of fighting for their life. Instead of working at a McDonald’s. But one thing I know for sure is that no one should be sleeping on the street. I rather my tax dollars go to providing poor helpless people with shelter than maintaining people on death row. In fact I rather none of my money go to prisons.

But the other thing that reminds me of this day is the general reflection on the homeless. I think that because I live here but when Iived in Spain people go take naps at parks and on benches all the time. It’s almost like sleep is villanized here. I vouch for bringing back nap time. Who the hell said we don’t need that after kindergarten should maybe be homeless b
