“CAUTION some content may be offensive.” Well, Ka’e k’e’s interview from St Paul, Minnesota, is exactly why I have that disclaimer on InvisiblePeople.tv. She flat out tells us what life is like on the streets for a young woman.

The disclaimer ends with the sentence “our hope is you’ll get mad enough to do something”. I am sure Ka’e k’e will offend you in some way. I even hope you get really upset at her candid, graphic description of what life has become. Just to survive she has to sleep with strange men. It’s the better option than freezing outside. Ka’e k’e is pregnant, and because of “survival sex” she does not know who the baby’s daddy is. I sure hope that gets you crazy mad.

Before you judge Ka’e k’e as being an awful mother know that she is just one of many young girls having babies on the streets. It’s a vicious cycle for many. They don’t know any better, and many don’t have the choices we take for granted. Sex with strangers and taking drugs to forget the pain is the only way to survive.

I wish you could see what I see. I see a hurting, young woman who is screaming for help. She is living the life that her family’s social-economic background gave to her. Most of these young adults come from families who were also homeless, or very close to homeless.

Offended yet? Mad enough to do something? I can’t stop earthquakes. I cannot stop hurricanes. I cannot end drug abuse or domestic violence. I sure wish I could fix the economy. Thing is, with a strong family we can get through every crisis that comes at us. We need to fix family. If we worked on fixing family, and for me it was the community of Alcoholics Anonymous that saved my life, we could stop the insane, vicious cycle and prevent other young adults from going through the same madness Ka’e k’e lives everyday.

So now that you’re offended I pray you will take real actions to help the hurting young adults in your community

    I can only imagine how hard it is for her. I don’t judge her. She seems like a nice person who really needs some angels to help her.

    I absolutely understand. All anyone needs is “family” to lift them up & pull them through, and that doesn’t have to always be biological family. it can be a community of friends, and it is all of our responsibility to be that for the lost people who cross our path in life. I strongly believe that people can change when shown love. It’s easy to judge but it’s also usually not that hard to understand if we try. I didn’t watch the video yet, but I understand survival sex. God help her to pull through.

    Sweet young woman. Strong head on her sholders. She has herself pretty well together already. She just needs financial help and housing and I believe she has a good future. I care very much about her. Expecting worse.
