Texana Hollins Got Her House Back!!

I posted about Texana Hollins, a 101-year-old woman who lost her house to foreclosure. HUD told her she could stay as long as she wanted – until it was deemed uninhabitable. Thanks to some amazing people in Detroit who bought and renovated her home, she got the keys to the house she lived in for 60 years. I love endings like these, and it’s great (and healthy) to read and watch good news.

    She is indeed a fortunate woman to have such friends and neighbors. Most elderly people are not as fortunate and have to rely on the fixed income they receive from social security to eek out a living.

    Even this may be threatened for future generations if the Paul Ryan budget becomes a reality.

    Sorry Sheryl for being a drag on an otherwise wonderfully uplifting story. 😦

      Damn near everything of value to ordinary Americans is threatened if the latest incarnation of the Republican party takes over.
