Dear Michael Moore

Dear Mr. Moore,

I’ve been a fan of your movies and recently watched videos of you in Madison, WI. I got to thinking about the way your voice gets people to pay attention, to really look at who we are and what we’re doing or allowing to happen in this country.

The war out here to survive needs to be shown as it truly is…a war to survive. Corporate America needs to “see” the faces and “hear the voices” of those they are stepping on while feeding their insatiable greed. Funny, but not funny, is the fact that without us, who are they?

I believe, no, I KNOW that it is in the power of the people to change the way things are being run in their countries. Just looking at world events will show us all that. All it takes is the will power to stand up. All it takes is the courage to speak up. All it takes is the decision to act.

I want people to see first hand, what it’s like to hear your 2-year-old cry herself to sleep because she’s hungry. I want them to hear a teenager’s rage about being ignored and feeling left behind by a world she is struggling to find her way in or read her suicide notes to herself because she would rather die than live in a cold world. I want them to read about what it’s like to work two jobs seven days a week until the point of collapse or losing an unborn child while on one of those jobs because not working is out of the question.

I know you’re a busy man, Mr. Moore. I know you have projects you’re working on and I understand. In the meantime, I will still send tweets to you. I will still watch your posts on Facebook. I will read your stories when they’re posted on The Huffington Post. But please understand, that we, Homeless America, are busy too. We’re busy trying not to die out here.

Sincerely,

Carey Fuller (Aka: Indy, Indyinn, Indyinnz)

About invisibull

Let's see now, what should I say on here to make people think I'm more interesting than I actually am...I'm a single mother of two with a passion for helping others less fortunate than myself. I like to write, finished a book and am working on another. Other than that I live a real-life video game where the goal is to get out of homelessness and provide a better future for my kids. Peace!

    Dear Carey,

    I hope Mr Moore reads this.
    You are a warrior. Keep fighting so that you and your lovely children can have a better life. Continue to use poetry as your weapon, and love as your constant companion.

    One day, we’ll all inhabit a more equitable planet.

  3. Hi Carey! I just accidently stumbled upon your blog. Blessings to you and your children. I have been pretty close to where you were without actually being on the street. Being a single mom is the hardest and by far the most rewarding job there is. I applaud you for “overcoming” and making the most of your situation. I will be following your posts and I know there is going to be wonderful things to come for you just like it happened for me!

    Dear Carey,

    Here in Nashville we have a shelter that allows families to stay together as they get back on their feet. As you must know, this is very unusual. I’ve volunteered there for some time and I can vouch for them; they do great work. I don’t know that it matters to you, but they are not affiliated with any church or religious organization. They do a great job of screening their clients so everyone there is absolutely serious about climbing out of homelessness. Check out their website here: http://www.safehaven.org/

    Hi Carey,

    I just ran across your blog and wanted to tell you how much your story touched me–not just as a mother of two little girls myself, but as another human being. In my humble opinion, nothing gives us greater strength than our maternal instincts to protect our children. I can see that in you, even from the few posts I’ve read. Thank you for sharing. I will continue to stay tuned into your story. Please let your readers know what we can do to help.

    Hi Carey, greetings from Ireland. I saw the HuffPo piece on you and just wanted to say hello and offer my best wishes to you. It seems from this remove anyway, that the majority of American’s are really struggling and are being treated so badly by the very people who have been profiting from all their hard work. Pensions dissapearing, healthcare insurance issues etc. What a shame that anyone who tries to make things more fair is called a communist/socialist/nazi. It seems ridiculous that the elite there will try and crush the very people who made them rich.
    I hope many good things come your way. Take care
