CT/NY Did the same to me but I went to a Shelter not better than the streets. The man posting this video has something in common with me. The same Corrupt people in power forced me in the streets too.

I was amazed when I bumped into this video because I felt like I wasn't the only one that abused by the system to the point of being homeless and hungry. By the same people too! I will always remember and feel the scars of what Judge William Sullivan of CT did to me.

Homelessness feels just as painful as someone you love dying! It make you feel like a Nothing. As if no one can see or hear you. It takes a long time to get over it too. So if you see someone in the streets please know that they are hurting inside.

The old saying "But for the grace of God go I" comes to mind and so many people are so comfortable and arrogant thinking it can't happen to them. Thanks for the enlightening post Felicita.

It can happen to anyone at anytime. A sickness can make you homeless! A loss of a job can make you homeless! Corruption can make you homeless as in this story! A fire, medical bills etc............. So many ways but we never think it's going to be us.

Felicita first i just want to hug you ! and tell you that you are a wonderful woman, a human being who should never have been abused by a system that has failed so many others. I advocate for the homeless, and on a personal level take blankets, share food, contribute to the food bank ...
we all need to be aware that beyond the superficiality ( is that a word! )
we all know... "you can't judge a book by it's cover" ... who has the right anyhow? GIVE WHAT YOU CAN ... SHARE A MOMENT OF COMPASSION ... ANYTHING ...TO UPLIFT ANOTHER HUMAN BEING ... EVEN YOUR OWN HOME!

Join to Advocate as well >
i invite you to send me a Friend Request here >

Felecita please let me/us your friends here at know how you are doing and if you need any help in the future ... o.k. dear heart :-)

Life is the sum of experiences that we encounter as go through life. Day to day to struggles and triumphs are experienced by all of the world's creatures. As human beings, when we encounter a challenge, we have freedom to choose how to react. Every decision that we make leads us down another road. We will never come to exactly the same crossroads. Every decision the we make has significance. The tiniest choice that is made reverberates throughout the entire universe.

fascinating- did anyone read the blog entry linked to in the video descripiton? i met a homeless man in a parking lot the other day, and he said there were tent-camps of homeless for 25 miles down the river's edge. i wonder how many are there due to police harassment...

It's horrible & shameful that the United States doesn't have enough help or the right help for the homeless. We were lucky enough to have family to take us in when there were problems - just like families have always done around here. But so many have no family, or none close enough to get to.. it's just terribly sad..:(

I can't believe it!!! First I found this video of a man that suffered at the hands of the same people that made me homeless and now people are listening to me as if I weren't invisible anymore. I feel overwhelmed and of course I am crying like some nut. Thank you each and everyone of you. One day I will give back big time. Remember that I said that!!! " Once you are homeless for so long there is no such place as home" .Felicita Luna

Being homeless must be terrifying. Just being on one foot from being homeless is stressful. It is very sad. A big hug to you from me

This is a runaway problem the government in many cities (in their infinite wisdom) is locking up homeless people. They consider us sheep for their respective county or states "revenue wolf", I think that in the coming months that our people in tent cities are going to get tired of this and they will be the front lines of change for this corrupt form of government. I have commented on this MANY times it is disgusting and it CAN happen to any of us, not a one of us are immune to this. Perhaps we should take all of our tent cities (the entire nation) and move them to capitol hill! Let us know if and how we can help Felicity.

My sister lived in her car for 2 years at least, mainly because she spent her money trying to Sue because a Doctor performed a pap smear on her when she was 9 months pregnant, and it killed her child.

The baby was not considered 'Real' enough to allow for Legal Recourse.

Most Women don't know that this CANNOT be performed, and some do not realize that this is why they lost their Child. If you are Pregnant, DO NOT get a Pap Smear. It will kill your Child, and there is no Legal Recourse!!!!!

I think that you should all know that America has been put to shame by a 3rd world country. I am in South Africa at this time and there is a homeless problem here as well, Johannesburg is about the size of Chicago and instead of CRIMINALIZING being homeless, the government goes to these homeless camps and puts outhouses up for them! They also in the winter provide electricity so that "encampment" fires do not injure or kill these people. I am ASHAMED of our government, the more I think about this the angrier I become, it may not be such a bad idea to gather ALL of our homeless people, march to capitol hill and FIRE our elected officials! Just because you are homeless does NOT mean that you no longer have rights, we are AMERICANS and the morons that we have put in office can be FIRED as well!!!

I am proud to be South African... Thannx Raymond... we seem to be sorting out all of our issues, although it has taken a long time it is coming right.. i cannot believe that the USA.. suppose to be a first world country can treat the very people that put them in office like that

Homeless people would die of hypothermia sleeping out in that snow, wouldn't they? What if people don't have all the equipment and "hiking clothes" that the guy in the video suggests -- how would they carry it all? The video sort of makes homelessness sort of sound like rough camping (or is he talking about "being on the run"... I'm sure for many people it's harder than that, and also, many homeless people have mental illness issues.

Yes, "there but for the grace of God". Terrible what is happening to people in this uncaring economy.

There are people with no shoes in the Winter that are Homeless. I have seen them wearing plastic bags over their feet. If anyone can donate socks to keep them warm it would be a blessing. Shoes don't last on the streets.

I'm sure that this guy knows where to hide his things, most homeless people learn to do that quickly. Snow caves are probably what he's talking about, and they have been known to save lives in the snow. Not all of them have a Mental Illness. My sister didn't.

You are so right Felicita. I have been homeless and I felt like I was nothing also. I don't know if my self esteem will ever be repaired. I prayed to God to end my life until we were found and took to a Christian homeless shelter. Thank you for posting.

I learned how to survive being homeless for about 7yrs. The shelters are corrupt and they really don't care if you eat or not. The workers steal the best food and donations that people give The system put me in the streets then try to criminalize me for being poor and in the streets. I stood firm in my belief that I too deserved my rights because I was important like all the rest of the human beings on this earth. I wish I could tell all the homeless to lift their heads and think of themselves as important too. To survive I went To libraries, stores with bathrooms, friends and families homes, the train, pantries, I painted by hand on clothing so that I could eat, I borrowed money, I studied on my own at the law library , I would go to the park to feel connected to others and then I went to the shelter. I was denied help by the state! I did all this as I was waiting for my fair day in court LUNA VS DOBSON which became a First Case in Law Books! Now I have a roof over my head and my children have their own rooms and TVs and most of all we have each other. I teach my children how to be strong inside and outside!!! I Teach them To lift up their heads and care about others and animals too. You see your home is in the inside of you!!

Felicita (it's me, CA_target),
Just wanted to tell you I also spent my days learning at the Law Library!
That's how I eventually found my way to the CA POST Commission (Peace Officers Standards and Training).
It was because of one good man and his bureau chief, that I wasn't framed for a crime I didn't do, or 'whacked'.
He had the skills, belief, and authority to call the federal agents and National Guard.
I told the local Sheriff's and the whole US government 3yrs ago that I'll never give up. Never give in. And never, ever go away. Until stalking laws and laws for police accountability are changed.
