NEVER give up. Never.
I emailed HUD cc the governor and legislators. I was absolutely certain that I wouldn’t hear a peep. I called my new friend, the woman, to let her know what I had done and the emerging plans I had to get help for her. She cried because I had taken the time to confirm her existence and acknowledge her worries. She tried to thank me and I made her laugh when I said, “Oh! Thank you for the call you mean, because we both know I haven’t done anything yet.”
HUD just called me. The governor’s office called them. Apparently, I’ll be hearing from other concerned parties. Many people will be affected in various ways. My new friend will be taken care of.
NEVER give up.
