The word is getting out friends. Our voice is being heard. And THIS weekend, MY voice will be heard across southern California and broadcast to the entire world, via the internet. KBEACH.org in the Los Angeles area contacted me to do a radio/internet interview late last week to spotlight the website and the plight of the American jobless middle-class. The interview went just over 20 minutes and I certainly hope I did all of you, and this website, proud. When I was contacted to do the interview, I have to admit I wasn’t sure whether I should be flattered or embarrassed. With any luck we will begin to be heard by many more great people with great ideas, opportunities and suggestions!
I was also recently was contacted by The Huffington Post directly and asked to become a contributing blogger there. Ironically and sadly, this is a non-paying gig in Arianna Huffington’s, “Third World America” section of that site. Yet, again, it is getting the word out. People are reading and commenting and visiting here. I hope you all continue to get the word out yourselves by Tweeting, Facebooking, and whatever other form of social networking you use. We need all the exposure we can generate!
It is truly astounding to be in the position so many of us are in at this stage of the game. In all honesty, I have just found out that I have little time left with a roof over my head. Being on the streets during the winter is going to be life-changing, to say the least. With any luck, I’ll make an attempt to keep posting as my situation allows. It is, for me and so many others, a sad commentary on America to be just one job away from redemption. Over the next weeks, I will try my hardest to continue to get the word out about our website. The more eyes and ears here may very well translate into possibilities for us all. I will keep fighting for us. That’s a promise.
