People Skool for Poverty Skolaz- Tacuma

Everything is a Waiting List

 

I was on my way home from middle school one day. WHAT! A sheriff deputy is at my house with a pink lockout notice on the door and my mom's in tears. What to do, another homeless family in SF. My mother has been on the Section 8 waiting list for years.

The Catalyst

Over the past few years I believe I have come 2 grips with a few decisions. By far I am not a willing participant in being the catalyst, but I am realizing that sometimes being the catalyst is exactly what your position is to be. I am floored with the idea that one person could be chosen to be the catalyst of many different situations. Imagine being born only to be put in situations that are uncomfortable and traumatizing in order for mankind to function.
