With the Bassel-Hagens disease came Congenital Lordosis and severe arthritis. I am experiencing severe problems with my spine and hips in these temperatures. Being homeless is so hard. I am exhausted. Physically, emotionally, financially and spiritually exhausted.
I was so ill today, in so much pain, I went at the speed of a sloth on librium and I doubt that I managed to do very much that was productive. I worked outside for 2 hours before noon but my body didn't want to function and a migraine started throbbing behind both eyes. What I really wanted to do is go to sleep.. or run away from home. If I had a home to run away from.Pain tends to block out clarity of thought.
At 11 am I stopped work to get a cup of coffee. After pouring the hot coffee into the cup, I grabbed the sugar spoon and poured a spoonful of dry coffee, instead of sugar, into the cup.
As soon as the coffee grounds hit the hot coffee I gasped.. too late. I decided to make a cup of hot chocolate. How could I get that wrong?
A week ago I purchased a heavy duty fleece lined hoodie. It was fabulous. I hate to admit this... but I have not taken it off since the day I purchased it. It's become the only coat I can wear through the night, because it's so soft. But it's so warm I don't want to take it off during the day. It already looks like it's 10 yrs old.
Two statements from Sister Sister Lillian at Mercy Housing was sent on twitter and caught my attention.
"Housing is means to an end; we’re about providing opportunity for people to stabilize their lives"
A home is so important. I am thoroughly perplexed at how the judicial system, the family of a criminal, or anyone else can believe that victims can be left homeless with no conscience..
How can you do this to a human being? And WHY would you do this?
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 Robert Huckins was not going to steal our money and leave me homeless. You personally guaranteed that it 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.
Genuine politics -- even politics worthy of the name -- the only politics I am willing to devote myself to -- is simply a matter of serving those around us: serving the community and serving those who will come after us. Its deepest roots are moral because it is a responsibility expressed through action, to and for the whole.~ Vaclav Havel
