Homeless Christmas

 The question posed on someone's Facebook wall..."What does Christmas mean to you?"

The answer: "this year it means being alone, and unwanted
 I am in a home for homeless disabled vets, there are 46 vets here that xmas aint gonna mean much to"

I looked it up. The place is TOMORROW'S HOPE, 6062 Heaverly Blvd., Coalport, PA 16627 

Look it up on Google. Send a Christmas card. Send a donation...they have a list of needs. If you're close enough, gather some friends and go sing Christmas Carols. If you have students, ask them to write letters telling these veterans how much they appreciate their service. 

I bet there are other places like Tomorrow's Hope. If they're closer, look them up. 

I don't know about you, but I don't want this man--and his fellow veterans--to be able to say "xmas aint gonna mean much" this year. 

How about you?

  1. I'm in two minds about this. One - Xmas is what you make it. Life is what you make it. We over-sentimentalize things sometimes. That doesn't help people get back on their feet. Reality is everyone in their life will have hard, shitty times but they come out of them stronger because they choose to get on with life. Look at you Anny.

    And yeah, coming from an Army background I understand veterans.
