Default day 15 jan 25

i know the last couple of days ive been alittle behind with my pictures i never really took pictures or used electronics like this before, this is all new to me . i am still working out ways to get around to the whole city and place my days here as eligible as i can ,i do have pictures from the last coulple of days and today that i need to find a way to post , my camera is dead and i cant find the plug to recharge it , tomorrow i will fix all these problems and be more prepared for my days ahead , by tom i will have the last 3 days wit my pictures i took cause the more i do this the more i realize how may homeless people we really have in the area alot are not even seen ,
today i passed out 4 bags , at the shopping center in rockville md , at hubbard dr, and rockville pike , the first bag i dropped the man told me he had like 5 friends behind a shopping center , so i drove back there and had to walk through a trail , and then i came up to a tent that had been there home , were each of them would go to corners around the area and collect what they could to make a shelter , i had only a couple bags not even enough on me this time for everyone , but they were so greatfull for what i could give thanking me over and over again , i believe it was the fact that i took my time to go so far out of my way to help , when i get my pictures back up you will see all of them standing with my bags infront of their tent in the woods

tomorrow is another day , and i will be more prepared
pictures of today and the last coulpe of days will be up tom

Default day 20 jan 31 2010

today i passed out one sweat shirt at malcolmx rd sout east and 7th st south east near that homeless shelter , i got a picture but am still having trouble putting my pictures up, i now got over 30 pictures of the last week that i want to put up , i have learned alot about these homeless people in just these 20 days i have a few people that i have helped 0ut a few times , i know that all of them may not be homeless some are out there because they are addicts some are even out there just to make money cause they can make a days earning standing at busy intersections daily , but i am not here to judge so i am seeing the ones who really appreciate the help and are truly tryn to find a way to better themselves just cant , i know cause i am out here daily and can see them at the same corners and so on , i can see the ones who respect the people around that dont help out and help out and the ones that make rude comments jsut cause someone wont give them money or even harrass people as they walk by thinking that people owe it to them , but neways i know that with out seeing proof that some may think that it is not true or that i am making this up , and i apologize if this is how i am coming out to you but i got pictures of those who let me and i want to keep faith in those people that believe , because i will get these pictures up ,
i wanna let you know that just till about 5 days ago i didnt tell anyone what i was doin not even my family because i didnt want them to discourage me , and i still have not told anyone else like my friends and coworkers either ,i hope that they will find out from hearing about it through others cause its not about who is doin what , but why , and i want others to think about why , this is just a beginin piece to an even bigger picture that i am creating and those ideas , thoughts , imagination , aspirations , and beliefs will stay silent so that one day when others see what i am creating they can look back and see where it all began ,
i am bout to start reaching 0ut to those who have viewed my blog cause i got like 650 views so i know someone out there is seeing this to help me on a new project im about to start ,
it is called FALLEN , From..All..Lifes..Lessons..Endure..Now
im goin to need just a few ideas of questions , because we can not find the right answers to anything if we dont ask the right questions , and i do not have all the right questions , so i need help to find the right answers ill better explain this when i put it up and start it up till then
tomorrow is another day ,
those who have commented have encouraged me and inspired me to keep goin thank you it means more than i could say in words , because it is not easy to put my thoughts and ideas up and go up to these homeless people and offer a hand , especially asking to take a picture so that others that may not be able to see these things for themselves in real time can get an idea , thank you because i do
