Who knew? next MC soon!
Jun 25, 2006
Please give me a little time to set up the next challenge!
Wow...You're correct I didn't know I had won the "MC Experience." Thank you Rudi and everyone for the wonderful comments. I am just back from a few days on the streets of NYC and just looked in to see what was happening on the forum and stumbled into the forum, and saw the posts on what happened to the MC? I will try to get it started in the next day pr so. If anyone would like to help me get it set up, I would really appreciate it, as I remember the mess I had with my last attempt.
There were some questions posted asking about the image of Charlie, the Katrina victim, which got my photo this "win."
He and his wife lost everything in the storm. A business, their possessions, and everything else. They were taken to Florida by FEMA and housed for a time with their two children. They could not find work and were put out of a motel onto the streets by FEMA. Then a church group brought them North to New Jersey, a destination picked by them to deliver the children to his wifes mother, and get the kids off the street. Her mother had no way of taking the couple as well as the kods so Charlie and his wife Chetty ended up on the streets of Philadelphia. Here are some links to the images of this couple.

As for the image I posted here in the forum. That moment was so intense. Charlie just broke down crying and threw his arms around me, in a desperate hug. He cried out “no one cares!”
I wish I knew what to do to help? I don't
Thanks everyone and give me a little chance to get the MC Challenge started and come up with a good topic.
