For some it's difficult to make it

In an ideal world, there would be no hunger nor homeless people. In Hawaii there are many more people becoming homeless which will only become worse because the middle class is slowly being squeezed out of Hawaii irrelevant if they are Hawaiian or not.

Well in today's paper a very touching story with touching pictures:


Pam, a homeless woman who did not want her last name used, was served yesterday at Ma'ili Beach Park by Regina Sabarre and other Word of Life Christian Center volunteers. Another volunteer said: "We are one with them and we want them to know they are not outcasts."




Franklin Feliciano and his son, Franklin Jr., 3, were among those who received the 500 meals Word of Life Christian Center volunteers handed out yesterday at Ma'ili Beach Park.

IMHO we live in the greatest country in the world yet look... we have homeless people in Hawaii. Of all places. Some who go hungry. How sad.

I pay property taxes in Hawaii too (as well as in ________ and in Washington... two properties were inherited) so it's disappointing when my money does not go to help those people who need help. Auwe. (For shame.) It's sad.
