It was a hallelujah moment. I was thrilled to pieces for her, as were homeless advocates and civil and human rights advocates around the globe.Follow @DeniseBundy
It's times like this when you thank God some are not wanting to argue or debate. That no-one is really interested in ripping apart MLK or anyone else.. ..... and will step out in faith and ACT.
This morning I woke up to another incoming winter nightmare coming over the Sierra Blanca peak. The snow had just started falling and I was so cold despite the thermometer saying that it was in the 30's.
I was cold right to the bone.. my skin felt like ice. It's strange how you can't always depend upon the temperature when you are homeless. 25 degrees in the pouring rain is a lot different than 25 degrees with sunshine.
Everything I had scheduled to do today has to be delayed until tomorrow. I was so cold I want to scream, but all I could do was pray that this minor storm dissipates quickly and unexpectedly.
We meet up with Aaron and Curtis in Little Rock, Arkansas. These guys are the real deal. Each day they set out identifying and meeting the needs of their un-sheltered homeless neighbors.
Their motto: "No apologies. Just help." Their mission: the one.
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.
