This year, because of COVID-19, I’m not going anywhere out of D.C. My prayers go out to the living and the passed on homeless, whose only issue was being homeless and lack of medical access. 

Being safe is the most important thing for a senior like me. I don’t take anything for granted when it comes to making it another year. To survive this is a special thing because I could have passed on. I’m grateful for my testimony, it helps me to identify with others’ pain that I was once in. 

Being able to remember the lesson in the pain of your life can propel you to higher heights. You can go on and do great things with your life, and in the process help someone else move to the next level of their own life. What I would call the “circle of blessings.” If you don’t put nothing in the circle, you can’t get nothing out. 

In remembrance of my beloved wife, Roberta Bear, I’m always praying for her soul. May God keep her. This is the fifth anniversary of her passing. She died on the 24th of November, 2015, and life has not been the same. Never take the time you have with family for granted. Always say “I love you,” because that could mean the world to someone else. 

I wish the best to the Street Sense Media family, friends, and customers.

God Bless and Happy Holidays.
