Have you ever had a real emergency? Have you ever found yourself in a situationwhere you were desperate, and had no place to turn. Even more urgent, have you ever had others, a child or an elderly person who dependent on you for food, clothing, or shelter, and you had no idea where those would come from?
If you have experienced something close to this dire situation, you know the heart wrenching anguish and the pit in the stomach such a state will bring on. Sadly this state is far too common for those who live on reservation areas of the Southwest.
