What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? …
Since they won’t post this in the Talk of Alvin, Let me put it here.Shame on half of you people in Alvin, Texas! I was reading your comments about the Tent City here in Alvin. Seriously? I hope none of you ever have to experience the pain that goes along with becoming homeless, I hope none of you ever experience the after math of things like Harvey, I hope and pray none of you have to ever wonder where the money will come from for your medications. I hope none of you ever have to wonder where the next meal for your kids are coming from.
Most of you are one paycheck away from being homeless and I’m ashamed of you. Your answer is to put them out in the streets and back under the overpasses. If that happens, you better hope your house stays locked and you leave nothing in your cars.
The Tent City keeps these folks off the street, it offers them hope, but most of you can’t do anything but criticize while offering no help of any kind. Shame on you. These people didn’t ask to be on the street. Life took an unexpected turn. It could happen to any one of us at any time, especially this day and age. You people have grown cold and calloused and I’m ashamed of my community for the first time in a very long time.
I hope and pray it never happens to you. Jill Craddock Rea, has done a damn good job trying to help the people in this community and trust me when I tell you the alternative is not what you want in Alvin, Texas. I remember a time in Alvin when the community came together. I have personally over the years given many of you money out of my pocket and never asked for it back. I have worked countless benefits for many of you and never asked for a dime, after donating my time as an auctioneer. Shame on you, we are better than this! This is Alvin, Texas By God Act Like It! Burying your head in the sand and pretending a problem doesn’t exist doesn’t help fix the problem. Trying to throw these people out doesn’t solve the problem!The Butcher Shop
