Okay, okay, okay… even I know that this TOTD is pretty messed up. Sometimes, I just can’t help my mind. I’m going to do my best to turn some good out of it by promoting some very fine people. Again, I KNOW that it doesn’t make up for my demented mind… but, hey, at least I’m trying! And, let’s be honest… if it spurns one person to help out any of these people, or places, then it was well worth it, I’d say.
TOTD – It’s Not the Sudden Stop at the End That Hurts, It’s The Other Stuff!
by Senator Brett
Some time ago I helped out at this ministry that catered to people with all sorts of social issues. They provided ministry, housing and food to man and women who suffered through drug, alcohol, homeless and domestic violence issues… as well as acting as a half-way house for ex-cons who seemed really determined to make a better go of their lives.
I “worked” by doing the photography and video filming & editing. Rough job, I know. I’m such a hard worker for the underprivileged! Where’s my plaque?! Anyway, my desk was right next to the receptionist’s desk. Her job was to perform the usual receptionist duties, but she also was responsible for pre-screening any potential clients. She had a long list of questions that she asked whenever someone called in looking for some help.
And here’s where my crazy mind makes me evil… like the Devil.
Whenever a female would call in one of the first questions she had to ask was, “Are you a victim of domestic violence?”… and for some reason… I would think of all the ex-cons and crazy people there and think… “No? You’re not a victim of domestic violence? Do you wanna be?!”
I KNOW! Horrible! Plain evil! But, I couldn’t help it. It happened every time. Once, there was a group of the women standing around the receptionists desk when she was screening someone over the phone and I had to leave the area before she got to the question because all I could see in my head was this group of women surrounding this poor woman calling.
I hope I enjoy Hell! I’m okay with getting what I deserve!
Have a great , people! Also, please remember… The Golden Rule is not a suggestion!
Your Friendly Senator
Okay, now that the bad part is out of the way… let’s get to the good part. If you are in need of help, if you know someone who is suffering from domestic violence… or if you want to help those that are helping the less fortunate, if you want to donate time or money… any of the above… please, contact these people listed below. What you do unto others is what defines you as a human being… well, that and opposable thumbs. 🙂
Also, if you know of shelters or ministries in your area that you want to promote, please, feel free to comment and leave their info so that other people can see it. Thank you. One last thing… video at the end… great song, great voice… seemed very fitting. Enjoy.
