When I lay in bed in excruciating pain I literally pray to die because I just can't find a way to handle this stress that never ends, never ceases, in a situation growing worse by the day.
A half dozen deer came running up for breakfast, but I no sooner walked away than another 20 deer joined the original 6 and a war broke out. After breaking up the group into manageable numbers I watched a buck happily eating while a few doe looked on. He was in far better shape than the doe. and he seemed totally oblivious to the fact that hungry looked on while he ate.I couldn't help but reflect how humans can behave in the same fashion. We see those around us do better, but do we ever ask who had to do without so that they could have?
Robert & Sylve Huckins have a home.. but they never paid for it. Their victims paid for it. Bernie Maddoff lived a life of extravagance - yet he didn't pay for it. His victims paid for it.
We ask people to be altruistic, caring, have compassion. When we should be demanding honesty, honor-ability, moral character.
I waited for the little APHA gelding all day, and he never arrived, so I have no idea if I am supposed to go and pick him up and deliver him. While waiting I started contacting the riding programs around the state of NM we would like to emulate and I stopped dead in my track when someone passed along a twitter about a homeless father and his little girl.
There are some stories that simply break your heart - then motivate you to action. There is no reason why a little girl should experience the absolute devastation of homelessness: Of the feeling that they are not good enough to have a home. We ARE our brothers keeper no matter how the world may try to persuade us otherwise.
If I have learned anything in the past 3+ years, it's that homelessness truly hurts. Truly destroys. And we have a moral obligation to see the hurt in the eyes of others and not make excuses, make up lies, or turn away. We look, and we act!
Mike and his 6 year-old daughter Taylor live in a homeless shelter in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Mike was hurt at work and without income they lost everything.
There has to be someone related to Robert & Sylve Huckins must have some means to reach them, if it be Michael Huckins, Dr.Kenneth Ogilvie ( Diana Huckins? Dominic Huckins? Malcolm Huckins? ) or Patricia Ogilvie-Huckins and get them to return ALL of the money they stole from us so that I can buy a home and get our lives back. I am begging anyone in this family for help.
I don't believe I have EVER witnessed any none violent crime that can be as devastating as stealing someone's home. I am walking in Dorothy McKeevers footsteps, day by day, month by month, year by year.
Liam Griffin, I sat in your law office with two witnesses as you gave me your promise, your guarantee, that our money would be returned before harm came to us.
Patricia Ogilvie-Huckins you were present the day I signed contract with your son. You walked out of the kitchen with Sylve Huckins and your son introduced me to you. He told you that I was the British horse trainer he had told you about, the one he was going to build the home and barn for. Why didn't you say something? There may be a rational and reasonable explanation but I have spent over 3 years, homeless, not understanding it. I understand it even less knowing that though I was a total stranger, both Dorothy McKeever and Sally Canning you KNEW, and you knew what your son had done to them and others.
Dr. Kenneth Ogilvie, I contacted you and simply asked for a reference, not knowing that Robert Huckins was your cousin. Robert Huckins had just stolen over $30,000 from the domestic violence shelter, HEAL, yet everyone was trying to hide it. There was a history of stealing large amounts of money. $65,000 PLUS from Nancy Canning. $89,000 PLUS from Dorothy McKeever, $45,000 from Francis McKinney. The list just goes on and on and on.
Because of Robert Huckins I ended up paying $140,000 to be homeless.. sat in the cold, emotionally, physically and financially broke. In the middle of a recession, with no way to recover the stolen funds.
Today Robert Huckins has his own home...
He also has OUR home.....
He also has a lot of people's money...
And his freedom.
Women are not banks or loan institutions. Women should not be the source of a retirement fund for people who don't want to do an honest day's work for an honest day's pay. Holding women hostage while playing with the judicial system, a horrendous game of cat and mouse extending YEARS, with the victims whose very homes, families and stability are in jeopardy is cruelty, as cruel as a physical beating. It is financial and emotional RAPE. Homelessness is not justice. It is a slow, painful death.
Please, I beg with everything I have within me, please convince Robert Huckins to stop this torture and return the building fund he stole from us so we too, can have a home.
Instead of saying that man is the creature of circumstance, it would be nearer the mark to say that man is the architect of circumstance. ~ Thomas
