  2. Sometimes friends need a little help to tide them over through some rough times. I don't like helping people who bring on their troubles cos they are irresponsible and lazy. But some people who try hard are kicked when they are down, and these are the ones who deserve some help. Good for you Andy; this is what makes us human beings. bfn – Wayne 🙂

  7. August 12th post.Your friend would have been pleased just to have your company. To ssupport him by wearing the nose piece too, was even nicer. Did the oxygen make you feel frisky?

  8. Greetings David aka Andy,You are indeed brave to post what you do on a website for the whole world to see. Obviously you open yourself to all sorts of criticism andharassment. I can only assume that the posts I read today showing your helping out several people are real circumstances in your life. If so,then WOW, you are doing a lot to share love with people. Not many would even care, much less go out of their way to actually spend money and talk to homeless people (for example).I feel that my friend Scottie knows and trusts you as a valid person. So, I do as well. I pray your example will open the hearts of others to help others less fortunate or in difficulty. The best always to you.–carlitos

  9. August 13th post.I love that you will spend time with someone who must need a little love and company as much as the food.The security guard in the 7-11 will have something to tell his friends and family, too.

  10. The story about the homeless guy brought back some bad memories for me, David… frustrating memories. About 4 years ago, my brother got some tickets to a Boston Red Sox night game for his birthday… He asked me to go with him, knowing that I am a baseball fan… Of course, I have been a Yankees fan since I played little league at age 11… That, was his way of irritating me. He and I have always been friendly rivals in baseball, since he loves the Red Sox… sigh…brothers…Well, I went along with the joke, and took the trip to Boston that fall night. What a zoo!! People everywhere!! As we worked our way towards the proper entrance, I noticed a young kid sitting against a brick wall, kind of in a corner, on the sidewalk, with his eyes closed. Everyone was just milling around, and walking right past this kid… He couldn't have been more than 16 or so… I stopped in my tracks, and then walked towards him. My brother, knowing about my compassion for hurt people, rolled his eyes, and said something like "What are you doing? The game's gonna start.. It's not your problem… someone will find him, and take care of the situation…." All of which rang hollow in my ears. I leaned over and shook the kid, trying to awaken him, but, he was groggy… maybe even on some drug… I didn't know what to do… my brother was tugging at me, reminding me that he wasn't my kid… All I could think to do, was to slip some money into his shirt pocket for food… I left him $20… I never enjoyed a game less in my life. I have never forgotten that kid, David. It hurts to think of my pathetic response to a hurt child.. Thank you for making a difference, kid. We need more like you!! luv, tman<3

  11. I dunno; is life mostly luck? Sometimes we get screwed over by circumstances beyond our control in spite of our best efforts to get ahead in life. Even worse a lot of people get kicked when they are down. My heart goes out to any homeless person; who cares what the reason is they are out on the street? I am not going to judge. bfn – Wayne
