LOCAL Interview :: Poverty & Urban Development

CHAINS SHALL NEVER BIND THIS MAN'S SPIRIT!

Earlier this morning,I just happened to meet one of the great humanitarians of our world, ROBERT HUFF. Although it was just a chance meeting through his voice mail, after I listened to your messages, Robert....I was so proud to be an American! I had been dispirited by the careless actions of a United States Senator to discount me as a voter, and not read my appeals of eight letters asking for a "Fair Hearing" through this disciminating housing authority here in Santa Ana.
Instead, she lost the values to Grandparent's rights, and is making me homeless as her signature hides these indiscretions of OCHA away from the public notice! No one legally represents the poor, Bob - the price is more loss dignity to their hearts than anyone that has not walked in their shoes can imagine! The infringement to a United States Citizen's Civil Rights as bureacracy runs over and over these unforunate people is pathetic. But, Robert, I do believe you are the pebble that when tossed into this mountain of discriminatons, the whole mountain can tumble with the magic of "We the People of the United States! If I could travel, I would be one of your most faithful supporters because I would consider it a privilege to shake your hand every chance I got! I am happy our paths crossed, and will count on meeting you, God willing someday soon! I ask again because there is so much cover up from senators down to mayors of our cities, has our legal profession forgotten the principles of their heart. Their oath, "Where he need is the greatest, direct your law in the fairness of conscience to the demand?"
America write me, I may shortly be homeless but my spirit is an the candle that cannot be distinguished easily because of government dishonor and prejudices. I am talking about thousands of American people receiving these injustices daily by our government, don't let this unfair policy reach and snuff out your own flame, please! (714) 835-8716
