Salutations, ladies and gentlemen,

My name is Michael. I’m seeking to meet people from all walks of life with hope to develop and nourish REAL, ENDURING and SINCERE friendships grounded upon mutual UNDERSTANDING, PATIENCE and INSIGHT. I step to the WIRE of HOPE to share my life experiences with transparency, while being genuinely honest, as I strive towards positive and constant communication with those willing to reciprocate.

I further need to accomplish 2 goals, but based on OMICRON, incarceration, and not really having someone I can confide and seek guidance from, both on their personal knowledge and from the Internet, these endeavors elude me:

• Being able to donate one of my kidneys to my BFF (Stephen);
• Pursuing my plan to confront and eradicate the California homeless crisis in 4 years using social media.

In October 2021, I learned my BFF was impacted by ESKD (End Stage Kidney Disease). He had been keeping this from me, because he didn’t want me to worry. Soon thereafter, I wrote UC-Davis Kidney Transplant Clinic requesting to be a living donor to help prolong Stephen’s life, but the Clinic denied my request using the vague language “to protect my future health and well-being.” It appears to me, the denial was based on my incarceration status. I need HELP.

Having a safe place to lay your head is a human NECESSITY. The condition “homelessness” is just as important as protecting our DRINKING WATER, EQUAL VOTING RIGHTS, and EMPLOYMENT RIGHTS. It’s time all of our communities demonstrate and embark in a UNIFIED, FOCUSED, COMMITTED and ORGANIZED fashion to address and DEFEAT this American condition that does not have to exist.

It seems as though seeing or hearing about adults, children, even VETS sleeping in vehicles or in tents on a sidewalk, in a alley or underneath a highway overpass, is not IMPORTANT. It’s peculiar and shows that WE don’t care enough as a society. I have a plan to purchase land then shipping cargo containers, modify these into units for residences and I need advice and ideas to do a video on the Internet.

Thanks, peace.
