Dear Tony:
I am the wall in your office and part of a building that you bought to operate a homeless shelter. I feel frustrated because I can't speak to you. If I could speak to you I would say, that you had so much potential, but your un-organization caused your downfall.

I felt the tension in the room you had when one thousand people showed up at your shelter, and didn't have enough food to feed them. The bad news is it made the front page news of the newspaper. I heard you talk about it with a friend in your office. I wanted to reach out and hug you, but walls don't have arms. You thought you had the money, but your corporate debit card wouldn’t work at the grocery store because it rang up insufficient funds.

Then there was a time when you had a client in your office, and you had to tell him that the shelter couldn't help due to lack of funds. This person beat you up and you were unconscious on the floor. I wanted to call 911, but I couldn't connect to a phone, because I am a wall. Thankfully, one of your co-workers found you and phoned for help.

Then there was the final blow. A man from the bank came in and told you that he was foreclosing, because you were unable to pay your mortgage. I wanted to cry, but walls can't cry.

You had good intentions, but when the shelter received bills you put them in a stack and forgot about them. I wanted to scream at you, but I don't have vocal cords.

The media reports in the news hurt you. It seems that people don't want to help someone who mismanage their donations.

This wall can't feel, hear or talk, but if the Lord wanted to it could. The wall might say to Tony, if you believe in me, your desire to help the poor was not in vein. I will reward you some day for your actions.

Sincerely
The Lord Jesus Christ

Kudos for an out of the box story. I really enjoyed the take on the familiar saying, if walls could talk. You also infused the topic throughout the story. I think it was creative and fun.
