A Letter to My Mentor

To all my homeless friends, supporters and homeless advocates, The great Michael Stoops, The Head of State to all of us who are homeless and those of us who serve the homeless has passed away today on 5/1/2017. This man was a great man and a legend. He worked like I did 24 hours a day and taking naps at his desk. He had a stroke about two years ago and never was able to regain the life he had in the past. This man devoted every waking hour to the United States of America and to the people who suffered from poverty and mental health. To the Veterans, to the Chronic and to every single child who was homeless this man got all us advocates on the same page and never hushed those of us who thought outside of the box. For me he was my mentor and he kept us able to keep up the good fight. We love you and we thank you for all work you did for I guess four decades or longer. You kept your office close to the White House, and when I called you it was like calling our White House. You never took credit for the work you did but this is the time we give you credit for helping to save mankind. Your work started so many new agencies and you most likely are the best community organizer in our history. Good bye my friend and THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING……
