request for help!

I write this letter to request help from the community. Let me tell a little about myself. I am a middle aged blind man. Ihave two college degrees. Despite this I have been unable to get a job. As a result I have been forced to live in tunisia which s where I am from. I would dearly like to come back to the United states which I consider my true home. If anyone can help me by either a job opportunity or a plane ticket back to the States I would most appreciative thank You
