There is something to be said about being with the broken by Yoli Vizcarra

I am not an attorney, scientist, teacher, architect, or of any professional association. I am just a passionately curious single mom with helping hands, and great friends. So When Lawyers to the Rescue – posted the Legal Clinic. I called Mrs. Aronfeld and said she could count on me. I thought I would support LTR, with my presence. So this Saturday I showed up.

MIND YOU THIS IS NOT JUST FOR THE LAW STUDENTS: IT IS FOR ALL STUDENTS; IN FACT, THIS IS FOR EVERYONE.

I was born and raised in Miami so Camillus House is familiar to me. However, I had never been there. The experience was awesome and powerful. There are no words that describe what I felt; but, I can only tell you that I understand Mother Teresa’s lifelong mission to help the poor and the sick. There is something to be said about being with the broken that brands your own heart. Remember, the poor are victims of injustice and oppression. The poor and the sick do not have access to the resources of the rich. The difference in the world between people is what we own, and don’t own. This is one of reasons – I support Lawyers to the Rescue, they are the voice of those who cannot speak for themselves.

I have the utmost respect for attorneys, especially those going above and beyond the call of duty. Lawyers to the Rescue, does just that. They are not looking to see if the client can pay, but how they can help.

I remember during my family gatherings that my mother’s favorite conversation starter was, “without attorneys where would ‘We the people’ of this great land be?” She left us to ponder; the pondering paid off. There are seven attorneys in my family specializing from A to Z–some practicing law right here in Miami. For my mother that conversation piece was very simple. In a communist country, like Cuba, there is no need for attorneys. (Get her drift?!!!!!) I wonder today, if mother’s conversation piece during my family gatherings was done on purpose.

I will definitely be the next conversation piece at the Camillus House. See you there. Thank you Lawyers to the Rescue for Helping those who can’t help themselves.
