Good Afternoon Residents of 6 West,
This past Wednesday some residents, Maddie, and I went to the United We Stand. We has a great speaker from Wisconsin talk. He started off by playing this video that HBO did about him and it was pretty stunning.
After he showed this video he told us about his life and what he has gone through. He told us how is was fired job after job, found out his wife was cheating on him, was an alcoholic, and tried to kill himself. He went to an abandon house and lit it on fire to kill himself. He said he doesn’t remember much, but he ended up calling 911. He ended up being charged with arson and went to jail for it.
And he got out he was tired of feeling the way he was, so he started talking to people like in the video. He message to all of us, was to stop being so mean to people and start being nice you people. Because you never know what kind of impact you can have on someone.
