A few words of encouragement might mean a lot

An old blogging buddy, On the Nickel, has re-surfaced after almost a year of silence.

He's no longer in Las Vegas, but has landed in Greenville, South Carolina. He says:

"There are a few sources of help here most of them broke cause of the overwhelming need. Advocates none to be found so far ....

There is an overwhelming sense of helplessness here. Folks look upon their circumstance as an individual one and not collective. There is no homeless newspaper or sense of identity. I believe it is a lack of advocacy for homeless people that creates this situation."
To someone like me who spends a lot of time trying to advocate for homeless folks, those words are re-affirming and encouraging.

So let me turn it back to him. If you've got a minute, stop by On the Nickel and leave him a few words of encouragement.
