Surviving homeless and poverty has become the new chic or cool topic on the internet!

Well blow me over!

Don’t get wrong! I’m elated that people are finally talking about it and not treating it as something that can rub off on them.

I’ve been talking about it on line for the past four years; writing about it for many more years and doing something about it over twenty years, but now, it’s just now a cool topic.

The usually respond I got from a$$holes when I tried to talk about it was: These people wanted something for nothing.

Now that it’s cool to talk about…. I didn’t realize the pain of poverty and homelessness had lessened because it’s a chic topic now.

Galll! Leeee!

We’re finally getting some awareness on the social media.

Just a few months ago if a homeless person acknowledged online that they were homeless and using the public library or any other hotspot to connect to the internet. People started avoiding them like the they were a maleficent of some sort. Often times these people were driven out of coffee shops and such because they shouldn’t afford the coffee. Yes, I have bought a many a cups of coffee so that they could stay and keep warm.

Just a few months ago, there was such a harsh social stigma attached to whatever the person said that they often never posted again. I know for I have tried to find them.

A social  stigma is discrimination against an identified group of people, a place, or a nation. Stigma is associated with a lack of knowledge about the person, place, or group of people. It is the disapproval of, or discrimination against, a person or group of people based on perceivable social characteristics that serve to distinguish them from other members of a society.

Social stigmas are commonly related to culture, gender, race, intelligence, and health.

She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

    I’ve been homeless various times and lived in my Jeep. I was stigmatized for it and remember getting the cold shoulder from people I thought were my friends when I told them. It’s unfortunate how small minded people can be.
