I wasn’t a Santa but my roommate was. This was at a spot in east Brooklyn, a super impoverished area riddled with a lot of drugs and violence.
He said it was disturbing how many kids had literally nothing, so they asked for the most basic things. Or they just asked to get out of shitty situations. He said stuff like this was common:
“I wish my mom would stop hitting me”
“I wish my brother was still alive, he got shot”
“I wish we had enough money for a microwave”
“I wish my daddy would stop doing heroin”
stuff like that was everywhere. -willmaster123
