Day - 82 Homelessness Has a Weakness
As for people on drugs goes, there might be a little truth in that. If you are doing drugs with someone that is homeless, you might find yourself homeless. But I wouldn't blame that on the homeless person. Also, there are plenty of people that do drugs that are not homeless. So, I stand firm on this: "homelessness is not contagious"!
The only logical way I can think of is to compare homelessness with things that ARE contagious.
What things are contagious?
Well, Homelessrob, If we have all that how do we use it? How do we get it to work?
I have a few thoughts about that also.
Let's say you live here with me in Tampa, FL. It is said there are about 7,000 homeless people here.
WOW, one person at a time is going to take a long time. Not worth it, right?
Now you have 10 groups of 3 people each.
Divide 7,000 by 10 and each group will have 700 homeless people to help off the streets.
But right now you are not considering "things that are contagious" and how that spreads! You have to look past the numbers for a second and consider the "snowball effect".
Let's say you start with a group of 500 people. Split that into groups of 3 each.
Now that's only 42 homeless people that each group has to take care of.
At the "rate of John" it would take less than 1 year to get all the homeless people here in Tampa off the streets.
Far less than 1 year!
That group of 100 people can stop homelessness within 3 years here in Tampa.
Now, I know that you're still thinking about the numbers. I know you are still looking at the time frame. I know you are still looking for any "but" that you can find. That's OK. Just know this: I know for a fact that I'm right! I know because I have seen it. I just haven't seen it put together in quite the way I'm explaining to you.
Let's say my friend John had another 2 people helping him! More would follow (if they haven't started already). And let's say before long John finds himself with MANY people following his lead. At the rate that he is going he is not just putting nicks into homelessness, he is putting dents into homelessness. Frankly, that's what we need.
A system that works and at the same time spreads contagious things.
I made that up! But if you find any truth in it then you must consider that everything else I say is also true.
"we can beat homelessness, we can fix this problem!"
