I have been a resident of San Diego every since my honorable discharge from the USMC. I joined a successful company that, due to the economic conditions, the company that I wanted to help save ultimately failed from a lack of contracts.
The timing for my employment opportunities were limited and i found myself unemployed for a significant amount of time, to my regret..
Not willing to give up or fail I began my journey to further my future. I began with Labor Ready and I applied at numerous businesses and was willing to wash cars, landscape and otherwise pay my way. Knowing I would succeed if I just continued to make myself available.
The income was still limited but I pressed on while living under homeless conditions. Circumstances that still are prevalent to this very day. Homelessness cannot be excused and plays a major role in our San Diego society and must be confronted and not concealed.
During this time I was blessed and consider myself to have received a blessing by accident; a saint. Saint Vincent De Paul and websites like nz9f.com and thehomelesshandbook.com. No more sleeping in dangerous situations “on the street” as so many currently reside.
San Diego, we have to continue to bring hope to the hundreds, even thousands that line our city streets and lie in despair.
