during the holiday season when I was shot and was hospitalized (
November 20 2008) , it was Thanksgiving the holiday that my family
depressingly celebrated in the ICU department at highland hospital. Even
though heavily sedated I was able to acknowledge that it was
Thanksgiving and for my mom, brother or sister it was just another
emotionally heavy day of " Caheri" duty.
are suffering from deaths and violent injuries , actually more in the
holiday season than ever. Imagine the poor families who just lost a son
or daughter or the families that will continue to suffer as the holidays
approach. Folks who are dealing with issues such as these lack
motivation or a sense of drive, lets light up their spirits by donating a
can of food (non perishable)!
know that personally coming from a low income family Thanksgiving is
more of a hard project than a holiday. With insufficient funds and
roiling spirits families might very easily turn away from this
opportunity to share relation and appreciation with one another. I dont
have to say more because i know many of yall feel me. Some of us are
still living in the hood some of us have moved out but in the end we all
come from that same place and we know the hardships.
Be kind , you never know... you might help save a life.
