If you want to help the homeless, then instead of sending a cop with a badge and a gun, we need to send a trained Social Worker with a bottle of water and a sandwich. We need to have professionals who are trained to help the homeless, Social Workers, and Psychiatrists, etc, instead of pushing that responsibility onto the cops.

And we need a Homelessness Crisis Intervention Office at City Hall staffed with trained professionals who know how to best help the homeless.

Salute,

They used to put masks on mentally ill people so that they could not bite people or spit on people.



Now they just strap the person to a bed and they medicate them, and they keep the person strapped to the bed until they promise to calm down and behave. And then after they release the person from being strapped in the bed they keep the person medicated so the person just sleeps all of the time.

I spent a month in the mental hospital when I had my nervous breakdown, and it was a crazy place. And the nurses kept calling me to break up fights, I was sick, and I did not feel good, and they had me breaking up fights, and they had me acting as security for the place. I am not that big of a guy, and I was sick, I had just suffered from a nervous breakdown.

Probably the craziest thing that I had to deal with when I was living in a homeless shelter for mentally ill people, there was a guy who heard voices in his head, and the voices were telling him to stab the Black guy, so he had a knife and he was heading toward the Black guy, and I had to stop him, I told him that the only voice that mattered was my voice, and my voice was telling him to put down the knife, I told him that the voices in his head were all bullshit, and to just listen to my voice. I saved that Black guy's life that night.

Sometimes I was scared, and the crazy people sometimes do not make any sense, people can die for no fucking reason, just stupid mentally ill bullshit can get someone killed.

So, the first thing that the Doctors do is to get the people on medication to stop the voices in their heads, and then you get them into therapy so they can learn to determine reality from mentally ill bullshit. And they put them on medication to help people to relax, etc.

The shit they put me through made it hard on me to get well, breaking up fights at the mental hospital was not cool, it did not help me. I needed to chill in a rose garden, I needed just peace and quiet, and I needed good food and a nice comfortable bed. It was nice with my friend Lisa, she fed me steak for dinner, and she always tried to make things nice. Lisa loves everyone, she is a very loving person.

And I met my buddy Tom in one of Lisa's houses. I met some of the best, coolest, nicest people in Lisa's houses. Mental illness and homelessness can happen to anyone. Tom was a Combat Medic for the Marines, he was a doctor for combat, and he was great at managing homeless shelters and helping the homeless, and he was famous for feeding steak and lobster to the people in the shelters he ran, he loved people and it was his honor to spoil his clients rotten. Tom and his crew even raised over a million dollars to feed the hungry, they raised money by selling beer and hot dogs and stuff at Angel Stadium and at the Rose Bowl, etc. Tom loved to help people.

As we get all of the homeless people off of the streets and into housing, we are going to have to help a lot of mentally ill people. And people at places such as the new Wellness Center in Orange are going to have to help a lot of mentally ill people. Of note, many people who go there for help when they are sick will learn and they will help other people when they are well. Many doctors were once homeless, and now they are helping other people.

Salute,

Tony V.

Life is better if you have an attitude of gratitude.

Having had a hard life can make you a better person, you can be more understanding, and empathetic, and compassionate, and you can be more loving, if you choose not to become bitter and hardened from the hard times. And it can also make you a better actor, and writer, and poet, etc.

A guy who looked just like George Lucas told me not to let the hard times ruin me before I succeed, and he told me not to let success ruin me after I succeed. Do not become bitter and hardened from the hard times, and do not become spoiled and arrogant and ruined from the good times.

And Roy Rogers told me that you need to go through the hard times so that you appreciate the good times. Roy Rogers experienced the Great Depression, and he experienced hard times before he became successful, and he was the coolest guy and he did a lot to help other people. And right now, I am poor, but I have a great apartment in a great city, and I have food, I have many blessings. I was homeless for 2 years, so I know what it is like to be out there on the streets, and I am so grateful to have a nice apartment. Because I experienced times of being homeless and hungry, I appreciate having a home and food.

As a child working with my grandmother, we worked hard, we used to work 12 hours a day grooming dogs, and she was proud of me for being a hard worker, and she always thought that I was going to be rich and successful. She even told me to keep my record clean in case I want to go into politics. She had a lot of faith in me. It was hard work helping my grandmother, but I am grateful that I spent that time with her. She was an awesome person, I wish she was still here. And the whole time I worked with her she was teaching me about business, and about life. I am a better person because I spent that time with my grandmother.

And the Bible says to focus on the good things, focus on the beautiful things, don't dwell on the hard times and the injustices.

Philippians 4:8 New International Version (NIV)

"8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."

If we look at things in the right way then we can grow and mature in healthy ways regardless of the hard times, we can become better, we do not need to become bitter and hardened and ruined. And the hard times can leave you with some wonderful stuff if you are an actor, poet, writer, director, etc. If you are only wealthy and privileged all of your life then you are missing out on a whole other side of life, you become a deeper person by experiencing the whole spectrum.

And I had a cool therapist, he was a Ted Nugent fan, and he said that as long as you can be grateful then you can be happy. If I focus on my blessings and if I am grateful then I am happier.

Salute,

Tony V.

Here is some good stuff for the people whom are depressed, and whom feel empty... You need to get busy on a mission to help other people... And by helping others you can become more successful in your own life, and you can have more joy in your life.
 
---------
 
A Secret Scrolls message from Rhonda Byrne
Creator of The Secret
 
From The Secret Daily Teachings: If you have "needing money" in your vibration, then you will keep attracting needing money. You have to find a way of being happy NOW, feeling good NOW, and being in joy NOW, without the money, because those great feelings are how you will feel with the money.
 
Money doesn't bring happiness - but happiness brings money.
 
May the joy be with you,
 
Rhonda Byrne
The Secret and The Power... bringing joy to billions
 
-------
 
And the way to go from depression to joy is by helping others, you have to get outside of yourself and focus on helping others, such as by helping orphans, and helping the homeless people, etc, and joy attracts success.
 
As a friend sent me in an email:
 
"Biblically speaking, depression is the deepest form of self centeredness and the only real cure is to go outside of yourself and do something for someone else. That will clear the head and inspire the soul. Of course medication can cover it up, but I like to think of medication as more for recreation. Many may disagree, but it has worked extremely well for me over the years when I felt like I wanted to die and have just had it with the daily struggles to make ends meet."
 
The way to true joy is by helping others, such as by helping the homeless people, and by helping the orphans, etc, and joy attracts success.
 
The people whom I know whom are the happiest are the people whom are on a mission to help other people, and whom are on a mission to help to make our world a better place.
 
Salute,
