It is pleasing to note that most patriotic Americans remain immensely proud of their country’s military veterans. And yet. Not all fully appreciate what these brave men and women have been through on behalf of their country and fellow citizens. You see them on the sidewalks every single day of your life. But you would hardly blink an eye in recognising that there’s a reason, a sad and tragic reason, why so many men and women, both young and old, have been cast out or have ruled themselves out of mainstream society. But thankfully, organisations such as the military family mental health resources jamaica plain center are going to help them.
Now the thing is, what are you going to be doing about this? Because here’s a case where many of these lost souls if you will, won’t be coming forward to seek out support. Perhaps they tried it before but the hunt never helped. They just lost hope. Which might also explain why they’re back on the street. They became so disillusioned over the lack of support at home. It’s easy to tell a young guy to; lift yourself up, kiddo. But it’s not so easy for him. What can you do to get a kid like that out of the doldrums? Well, there’s two possibilities here. One is this. You could just pass on this information to the center.
And then hope and pray that one of their volunteer recruits will be pounding the streets to collect the lost souls. Or you could collect a bunch of fliers and just go hand them out yourself. But you better be safe out there. Because where these poor folks sleep at night; you have no idea. Living on the street is hard alright.
