"Homeless" Mission Near Diversey And Kostner

Good morning, everyone, it's 11:30am. I'm still feeling a little sick. Today's a week. I need to get better already, I've got things I need to do. Anyway, it's much more cooler out.

First of all I want to thank all of your readers for their heartfelt and sincere support of your blog. Timmy, you are doing far more than just reporting crime and problems in and around your neighborhood. You inspire all of us to rise above our afflictions, be more than we have been and do more than we have done before. You send a clear message to all of us that we are far more than we think we are sometimes. You have accomplished more at 17 years of age than most of us do in a lifetime! Whatever you do, don't let a few haters stop you from being the man you are. Their opinions don't amount to anything anyway. I am proud to say you are my son, Buddy. All my love, Dad

That is just awesome. Nicely done.

Timmy's father - thank you for this public message. What a great parent you must be! More men should give their children this much love and support. Maybe if they did, there would be less crime for Timmy to report on. Ignore the haters, everyone...

Thank you for the comment, dad. Quite a touching letter there, I have to say.

Anonymous 9:06 .... sorry to hurt you, dad ... he's not a great parent. My mom is. He has recently came back into my life somewhat after being absent for many years. I won't go into everything here, of course. I'll say he is doing a pretty good job making a comeback, though. And you're correct when you say more men should give their kids love and support.

Hi Timmy-
I was looking through some old posts and found one from May 14, 2009 (maybe 2008) "What the codes mean." If possible, could you post it to the right side as something that can be there all the time? That way we won't have to bug you about things you've already posted.

Dear Tim and Timmy's father: What a wonderful thing that after a long absence, you are reestablishing a relationship. Everyone deserves a second chance. Never look back ~ always look forward, for it is only the day you've got that you make positive changes in, not what you've left behind. You are an impressive young man, Tim, of remarkable achievement. I know what it means to overcome the odds with grit and determination. You're a good citizen and we're all proud of you. Thanks to your
Mom, too. I have a feeling she's an expert in grit and determination, also. My prayers are with you all.

Hi Ally. That was from 2009 for sure. In May 2008, I was thinking nothing about creating a blog. LOL. Anyway, I'll see what I can do with that. It's not really easy to get stuff like that on the right side of the page, but I'll try :). Thanks for the comment.

Anonymous 10:51, I agree with you there. Yes, my mom is an expert in that, and I thank her for being there with me the whole way. Thanks for your comment.

Well i like to say by where i live its getting bad. three different gangs fighting over the same turf. I think they're ridiculous. I see these guys all the time and wish i can knock some sense into them. Theres children that play outside and they dont care. I see different gangs walking down our streets looking for rival gangs. Its starting to get scary. and timmy i was the one that made that "rude" comment everybody thought a couple of days ago. I felt noone understood where i was coming from just as well i wasnt understanding you and why certain things you posted up. I do apologize and im very sorry if i hurted anyones and your feelings i didnt mean to. I really do think you do a good job thats why i go on your blog everyday. i just couldnt understand why you where putting personal stuff up and i apologize to you and your fans. i hope you can accept my apology. and i just like to let you know why i asked if you where autistic. I am too but i have Aspergers i have aspects of austism. now i understand u thats why i asked about that becuase i noticed. so i sounded like i came out rude which it kind of did. I just hope you can understand where i coming from. im sorry for being judgemental towards you. Im a fan of your blog. I hope noone gets mad at me nomore like that. i felt horrible after i seen how you and many people where upset. i still feel bad :( . I wish i could let you know who i am but im afraid people will chew me out because of the past comment i have written. Its hard having aspergers because im not fully understood.I been living in logan square for about 20yrs also. and i will continue to keep reading your blog. and yes you're doing a great job everybody who reads your blog knows you do your best and very well done.

Anonymous 7:09, I live in the same area as you. I know about the gangs fighting over turf. Yes, it is ridiculous, and I wish I could do the same thing to them. No, they don't care that there are children playing on the street. If anything, they make an attempt to intimidate them. I've been seeing the rival gangs for a few years now and I've been scared. That is why I seldom go outside.

What I don't understand, 7:09, is that you have a disability like me, but you can sit here and say the things you said to me a couple of days ago? I do not understand it at all. I have to admit, I was pretty hurt by what you said. It brought back the feelings of depression that I used to experience going to Monroe school. At that school, I was teased by almost everyone for no reason. And yet the administration always targeted me because I defended myself. They were always trying to give me detentions, suspensions, you name it. So when I read your comment, it took me right back to those days. I am still trying to build my life from those days, and reading comments like the one you sent me does not help me one bit.

I feel like if you can't understand me, reach out and ask. Nicely. Email me. Read my profile on the right side of the main page. But don't come on here and just side-swipe me out of nowhere. I have that problem with so many other people, and I'm sick of it. People shouldn't just come out and yell, especially after reading that I have special needs.

I put out some personal stuff so my readers can understand a bit more about me, and not just assume things.

The people who got mad at you are the ones who care a lot about this blog, and it sure seems like to me that they care about me, so I don't think they take lightly to people saying negative things like you said to me. They read that I have autism and probably don't appreciate anyone coming at their blogger like you did.

If you would like to tell me who you are, email me at We don't have to talk on here. We can just talk to each other over email.

As far as your aspergers goes, do you have a speech impairment with it or something? I'm just wondering, because I noticed that you said you aren't fully understood.

It will take me a while to think about forgiving you. I mean, seriously. That comment you made hurt me and lowered my self esteem.
