If Money Were No Object, What Would You Do?
If money were not a concern, I would expand our non-profit to include housing for seniors and battered women. Having walked the path of the latter myself and with one of my daughters, I have come to understand just how lacking the available help is for women that find themselves in this position.
The other group that is being pushed aside are the seniors. Housing and medical care are being taken away from them on a daily basis and they have no one to stand up and fight for them.
To me, these groups would be great together. The seniors have so much patience and knowledge to share while the hurting women and children need love and attention. I would like to see where this path could lead. Perhaps it would result in longer, more active lives for the seniors as they would have something to stay active for and care about; while the women and children might learn to love and trust again so that they will be able to move past the trauma lived through and become happy, confident members of society. We need to stop the cycle of abuse from generation to generation.
In the meantime, I do what I can – when I can – and as often as I can. I do believe a change can be made one person at a time….it just takes longer.
