I want to reach out to all people, and alot of times when you speak out people don't want to listen or they want to judge or make fun of you. I am here today to tell the youth, don't be afraid. I know how that feels and I used to be that way but some people say it takes a tragedy to change your ways. Don't be one of those people that wait for something horrible to happen to you or someone close to you before you try and make a change. START NOW! Now is the time to step up and take your place in life. I've been homeless, hungry, lonely, sad. I've begged and pleaded, but it didn't do me any good. From personel experienced I've learned you can't sit on your behind and wait for someone to give it to you. You have to go get it and I don't mean take it. I mean earn it, work hard for it because deserve it. The problem I am trying to solve is the poverty, homelessness and the starvation of our not only our youth, but everyone young and old. It's never too late to make a change.
