I was reading an article online from Florida news about limiting the feeding of homeless. I sat stunned to stupidity as I read this article, which I will post below my article so that you may read it for yourselves.
As many people have done, they work at restaurants, myself have worked at a Chinese Food Restaurant. Here twice a day they had a buffet, and at the end of that buffet the food got put into the garbage. Tossed out, wasted food, and more people starving and hungry that day.
I admit that this bothering me after three months was well to say the least was huge. There are hundreds of millions of restaurants that throw out the buffet at the end of the night. Millions of pounds of food, that does go to waste every day because no one thinks that maybe their garbage waste food, would still be good for someone else to eat.
There are people that have given up because no one would help them. There are people that kill themselves because no one will help or even listen to them. People are homeless for so many reasons that I could not list them all here, but I ask how many have been there and crawled back into this world we laughingly call society.
When I worked at this restaurant, there were many people that could have been fed with the leftovers. Probably 10-20 homeless people could have been fed. Yes Chinese food is not the best food in the world, and at least something in their bellies would have been a start.
How many companies other then restaurants throw out their leftovers, expired food from stores, that if ate that day would be fine? How many people are left hungry and starving and resort to violence and crime to feed them self? How many people would kill someone or commit a crime so they could have a roof over their head and three meals a day? How many will go to the level of extreme to keep themselves alive?
There are many that do just that, which are in jail, because they could not get their life back together. They commit a crime just to have food.
Many people that read this would think that I am off my tree with what I am saying, hence my only objective in what I write is to make people think, and make people ask questions of why do we not do anything to help?
I bet that if you asked many people in this world why they ended up homeless, they might answer bills, drugs, stress, they could not take it anymore, and so many more answers. I would bet, that the first two I mentioned; will be the top two, told to you by these people.
