Hello all,

I have had minor tech. difficulty but I did want to add a few thoughts
too..........

    Furs to the homeless..althought I felt their hearts are in the right
place and Fur being one of the warmest coverings .....the results would
probaly do harm to those it was intented to help...............I do have
a suggestion thought ......Frame these Furs behind glass , sell them at
a benefit auction so they could hand in the homes of the vailant....then
this money could be used for the homeless.......and why not take it one
step further and buy some property that could then be used by  homeless
and let those that participate in having shelter also help in housing
these misused animals as well.  How about letting the participants be
able
to purchase the properties itself..there by ending "some" homelessness. 
:) 

The whole Idea of the word *homeless* is ..........let me guess  "no
homes"......Home the word envokes the thoughts of
safety...warmth...cherished space where one can feel comfort and
peace.....to me this means that the way we obtaine proberty should
change............is there anyone else that sees this  general
idea.....to end homelessness.....

I don't want others to pay my way for me I have always worked since I
was 12 and have played by the rules yet this has  not given me a* home*
a place to feel safe and that no matter what I will always be welcome in
this space . I don't understand how to get this space.  Someone has 
this knowledge and I would request them to share  thier knowledge with
us that lack for what ever reason this piece of the puzzle....I have
other gifts within myself that I would share with any in need of what i
possess .all gifts to man being equal and unique...........how do we let
each other suffer when there is such abundance in the universe.  

I believe  there are others who feel like I do and want desperatly also
to find these safe spaces. I have read in several post of how many ther
are now living without an address.........and what little space they
have found  is  "not the right spot", "they should find other places".

8,000 to 12,000 in Golden Gate Park ...London, France, San
Diego.........?how about each of us donating 5.00 to our own cause then
find some one with the knowledge and experience to help us find lands to
share at costs we can afford..........I don't feel that just putting
medicine on a wound and not covering it for protection will help in
healing in the long run..although I am greatful for the medicine that
gives relief..sure the wound gets somewhat  better untill something
happensthe injury is reopened, then you have many time a worst injury
then you started with...........so you keep doing the same thing over
and over....not a good idea?..the body must stop its advance foreward to
take the time to attend to it's injury  to heal completly. Woulld 
working  in a collective thought of "One Body"  acheive  the best
result.........we must work within the structure of the world around
us.  Making changes in land ownership.....Land Ownership.....*who* owns
the land? the land own itself..........I wish we could find ways to  be
more willing to share more humbled to share ownership with the land and
all that dwell here......


Now , with the bad weather you would think that all people in need
would  be helped ...... reports say that is not the
reality.............and who will have the compassion to help these new
families.. help themselves.survive..........those that have been out
here,  those that have learned how to survive with out a safe
place....those that will find compassion and unity where they never
imagined it would come from............


Compassion comes in many forms ......but do we have the compassion we
need to help ourselves as a collective people *homeless
people*..*addressless people* our Home is this Planet we should remmeber
....

                                  Many in body, One in mind can do great
thing..........
                Many in  Bodys, Many in mind  can accomplish  nothing
extrodinary.

Thanks for the space,
Peace
Barbara
