It’s a shame that people in our own town need help with different things, such as electric bills, medical bills and a lot more things. Sure, they offer help, but when they really need it, they’re told no more funds are available.

I know there are a lot of people who are struggling right now. We are on a fixed income like most people are, but it does look like we, and other people like us, could get help with at least the power bill. We’re not begging, but we and other people could use that help right now.

We didn’t get in this shape because we’re lazy. We, like other people, hit on hard times, and I mean hard times. Sometimes, I know other people are just as bad off. We didn’t ask for it. It just happened. Sometimes we don’t know where our next meal is coming from.

We’re thankful to have a roof over our head. I’m just expressing my feelings right now.
