Scrooge Need Not Apply

It's a scam. They are just lazy. They will just use the money for drugs/liquor. Sound familiar? This time of year it seems to scream louder but it is a sentiment that seems to be there year round. The moment someone is approached by someone needing help there is a great deal of skepticism and sometimes false accusations that occur quite unfairly.

Oh, I'm in agreement that there are those who do have quite the tall tale, but I'm human enough to know that most people in need are genuinely in need. So during this time of year when we see more families in need of food, shelter, clothing, and a Yule experience let us all think about our own journey first before we pass judgment. Was there a time we needed help? A time we struggled?

Keep this thought throughout the year, and perhaps we will change the world. Anora

  1. I can't imagine some people not being in this position at least once in their life. I think it's very easy to sit back and judge and assume the worst about people, but the reality of it is, when life hits us hard, sometimes we just have to reach out, and that can be very hard to do. When we both went bankrupt and the business failed, we had nothing. Then we got evicted and our car screwed up. If it wasn't for the help around us at the time, I don't know what we would have done. xxoo
