God what a shame, life means nothing to so many. Do you know what the saddest thing in the world is?
A mosquito trying to get blood from a mummy...it seems we are reaching this point where all the give me’s and addicts don’t feel they have been treated properly because of those who work.
It is very sad that we do not focus on job training and rehab for non violent offenders. For the animals killing kids for their bikes, get ready to meet God..
For years as a state worker, I screened and signed up eligible people for jobs training, counseled them, checked with them at the schools/programs. It really helped a few; however, most, when they hit a bump in the road, gave up and dropped out.
They had so many problems and so much baggage, it was very difficult for them to overcome even the smallest daily problem.
The women, often single mothers would be on food stamps, subsidized housing, Medicaid, all the freebies. They signed up for training to get some more money-actually paid a stipend to go to training. Most had a sorry live in that beat them or their children, ate the kids WIC food, and spent the stipend money on booze or drugs.
Believe me, it is NOT the lack of programs. It is a lifestyle most are brought up in--3d or 4th generation welfare.
