100 Neediest Cases…

A bitch has been running around like a crazy person and stressing out over silly shit, which is why my head hurts (wince).

But I am so very thankful to be able to run around like a crazy person until my head hurts while getting shit together to feed my family and friends.


Not to piss in your holiday Corn Flakes, but there are many among us who need someone to reach out and care. As a community we need to care ‘bout each other 12 months out of the year, but a bitch knows the power of holiday guilt so I’m starting my pitches now (wink).

Please take a moment to read about the 100 Neediest Cases. Behind these stories are real people in real need…I know, because my mentee’s family was on this list just a few years ago.

Be generous if you are able and send kind wishes if you are not.

Recognize the blessing that your family and friends are and know that I am thankful for each one of you.

Okay, not the rancid knave-like trolls…but the rest of you for sure!

It is important to remember to count our blessings, isn't it?

And know that I consider you one of mine.

You're so right...people don't only get hungry at the holidays, or cold either, but I am glad that people come together and give at this time of year. I toured a local food bank a few months back, and they said the food donated this time of year lasts for months, and they are very grateful.

Sorry, but this list of 100 Needy reads like a joke, in that I mean superficial. This is the normal everyday life of millions of people all over the world. It was my life too on a daily basis. I was born and grew up in the caribbean to a mother who was brutally abused by my father. She got rid of him (divorce) and left with 7 children. There is no child support, social welfare (financial aide) of the sort in those countries. not when I was growing up. Nor was there a Judge to declare/award child support. She had to work as she always did. Our father moved to a different country and so was out of the jurisdiction of our State. I just want to say most of these people need to get up, and get their act together. My mother never allowed us to 'think poor' or behave poor. It is all in the upbringing and values and attitudes you give to your children. She gave us all the opportunities to educate ourselves. She didn't migrate to the USA either to achieve this.

My apologies if this seems callous and uncaring but I am tired of people who wait for 'help' and more help instead of helping themselves. I strongly believe that accepting handouts is not the solution.

These people should move to the caribbean or some other so-called 3rd world country to learn useful 'life' skills.

I am done now, off the rostrum. Enjoy your festivities or whatever you celebrate.

Yes, another bitch who means well.
