 in response to Singing Blue Flo...   

singing blue-- you didn't offend me-- the page confuses me and  my response or note was written to someone else and ended up with you. as for me, I can't write anyone. I am in Prague, Czech republic and poverty and hardship is the same everywhere. When you're on the bottom, you're nobody and it's no easier here than there and probably harder. The US government doesn't care about poor American who get attacked by landlords overseas and it's all cosy-cosy  in the Old Boys Club. And it took me some 8months  before I could even recover a valid passport-- the US Embassy made my life  hell here. Without valid passoport, you can forget about getting your proper residency documents restored... it was really a nightmare.  Someone on this page was complainting about foreigners on Aidpage  and  couldn't stop to understand that peole are people the world around. And besides, the only real Americans are the Native Americans and they got hit with genocide. When I was a kid, I worked in the strawberry fields adn most people in US would never do that kind of dirty manual labour for so little money, but they will complain bout the migrant workers who do it for them. In US there is real need for machinists-- I see the calls for machinists and skilled trades constantly, but  Americans will not learn to do skilled trades and so the jobs and companies re going overseas because the compnies  can't survive without a workforce. Many companies that need machinists and skilled trades will  not only pay for the apprenticeship, but pay basic professional salary during that entire time of and then grant journeyman's wages on entry... and that's very high paid labor, but Americans are not interested; but they will scream if  the same companies are forced to use foreign labor. It's crazy.

 

Aid page completely confuses me-- I am dyslexic and I can't find my way around. It's like being lost in a mirror labyrinth--so forgive me please. You didn't offend me at all.

 in response to pogomcl...   Sorry I offended you. I am strapped and struggling like everyone else. Even though I am disabled, I cannot live off of what the government pays. So I work and I do without. I do whatever it takes to pay bills...as long as it is moral, honest, and legal. I do not need legal help. And I do help myself..and I help others. I go to sleep knowing that I put my best foot forward. I don't cheat or do dishonest business. And when others are hungry..I share my food. Do you? I like to stir up people's feelings on various different subjects. I enjoy provoking thought. People don't always like what I have to say, but maybe they just have to look inside themselves and delve a bit deeper. Maybe I have hit on something that they are afraid to look at. Did you help another besides yourself today? It is in helping others that we indeed help ourselves. Do you like the state that the world is in? I don't..so I do something about it to change it. What did you do today to make the world a better place to live? You speak of evidence but left something missing in what answers that you seek. Did you write to your state representative today? I write to mine everyday to make this world a better place through change. I write for people, places, and endangered, and abused animals. What are you doing to change the world. I live it everyday. Stop being so self-serving and make a positive change in this world before it dies!!! Peace!!

why don;t you put yur evidence together and send it to a state epresentative or seek for free legal help. it's easy to find in the US and believe me there's nothing free or easy for people living abroad, so you shouldn't be xenophobic. If someone is from outside the US it's no easier for them to survive than you. google for "free legal aid"  +  state name   and you'll find some way to help yourself. As an  US citizen in Prague, I can tell you tht there is nothing given to me and I pay dearly for all, just as I did in the States. Poverty is the same the world around as well as injustice.

This is a joke right?! I don't believe that people give financial assitance here. It is mostly moral support..I am disabled, have fibromyalgia, injured from a car wreck in 2004. I have gotten screwed by my own government on my disability benefits. I see what the problem is. We have people from all over the world who are not citizens and come here for FREE help. I worked my back end off for 27 years and cannot get help from my country. Now if I was a foriegner, I would have all of my stuff paid for. Imagine that!!!!

Thank you kindly, for your immediate response to my rant. :) Honestly, I did not think you would respond at all. I realized, after reading my own posts, what a mindset I put myself into. I needed an outlet and this site really served a purpose by giving me a place to let it out. While I am still in the same position, I have been pushed back into reality and drug out from self pity. I guess I became so tired and lost hope when in fact, I am becoming stronger and getting closer, with everyday I go to school, to reaching a goal that no one can take away from me and one that will take care of my children and me in the future. Its just so hard to get there and I need help. I finally recieved a bunch of messages too! They were all inspiring and as I read their profiles, I can see that I am not alone and sometimes I even have it better than others. Its hard to see how much you have when you have nothing, but when you see others who have even less than your nothing is when you stop feeling sorry for yourself and work harder and keep going instead of quitting. I no longer feel alone but I still feel resentment towards those who have it all. And not because they have what I dont, but because I wonder if they know I am out here barely making it. I wonder if they care or take time to think about what all of us here go through. And if they do, why arent they here? Thanks again for listening and for this site.

I joined this site last fall. I had high hopes that good people still did exist and surely I would get some help here. I am a single mother of two sweet young girls. They are my life. I work low paying jobs and try to attend college with grants but with all these things I cannot pay my bills and hardly am able to feed my babies. I am ashamed but I have been busting my back to make things right and educate myself so that we wont have to suffer as we do now. But I am weary and so tired, I feel like I cannot go on for I have no more strength. I have not ever recieved one message since I have been here, from anyone. No one wants to help, with all these rich people in our society, still no one helps. I am angry and I resent people for being greedy and selfish. Sometimes, I think IF I do make it, I will be the same way because thats how people treated me, so why should I be any different. All I needed was a little help and no one would help. Why is this an impossible hope and request?

Here is a journal my daughter reads. She buys his books - which I have read. For all parents out there he tells it like it is to teens. He speaks their language and anyone who has ever been a teenager will know what he is talking about.

NOTE - parents may want to read his writing before sending to your kids - some material may be inappropriate for the younger kids.

Hi I am trying to find help for my best friend. He is the most caring for other people person I have ever meet and has help me very much. I love him dearly. My friend has low self esstem and feels ugly after a girl 4 years ago broke his heart by saying that he was the uglyiest person that she'd ever had been with. Can someone please help me find a solution to his problems. He has not had the dental care that is required in many years and I know that his mood and, outlook on life would improve only if he had more self confidence somthing that he says he's working on. I am a good friend and again, love him very very much but, I know how sensitive he is about his teeth and it is hard not knowing how to say that maybe if he were to see a someone who could help him his mood and self confidence may increase. He is currently looking for love and, I want to help him find it dearly because, I care so much not only for him but, for the reasons he's here ( to show people caring and how to open thier hearts to the world) that im now reaching out were ever I can. He is very low income and will tell me that it is the way god made him. So now...I'm looking for a sign from... Please if anyone reads and hears and feels my cries for help please contact me. Our only hope is eachother Please help give back my friend his life. Thank you very much. Eli F. Richey
