It is currently around 2 O’clock in the morning here. I am wide awake, shivering with fear, cold and staring out in the dark and misty weather with all sorts of thought going through my mind. I am frightened that I do not know where this road takes me.
I am afraid, as I do not know what lies on the side of this journey. I am going to lose it all here or on the other side. In my thoughts then, came this idea to put in writing this plea for help to all the good people of kindness and goodwill around our world.
I was a college instructor and, I hope, an exemplary family man to my children - who were the mainstay of my support system. Over a year ago, I was about to embark on a journey to further my career path as an Instructor but what came next has unfortunately left me in a vicious spiral circle, and eventually taking me of course at the detriment of my children.
We lost the apartment that was home to us, and have been sleeping in the car for months now. That alone has sadly brought about health issues of its own along the way. In the last few days, the car that has been our “home” and for school runs is no more. This is all due to some legal wrangling that I have found myself in the last 12 months, which has left me (and my children) wholly destitute as a result.
In the utmost time of need of one human family, I am pleading on behalf of my children (all under the ages of 16) for amazing act of human kindness of others. I cannot exactly put a figure to our needs, but please do bear in mind that no contribution is small, or too small! You can also help us by reaching out to everyone that you know and ask him or her to help spread the word through their social networks.
Thank you very much in advance.
