To tackle poverty in this country is almost an impossible task.
Ronald Reagan said “We fought a war against poverty and poverty won.”
How a country as rich as ours can have so many hungry people is an embarrassment, a scandal. How can we let this happen?
How can we go about our lives every day just ignoring the millions of poor and destitute people?
How can we simply watch a new class, the struggling class, spring up and pretend it isn’t happening?
I’ve explored these questions for some time now and have finally come to the conclusion that I don’t have the answers.
This is the same question I ask when I explore the question of how the Nazis were allowed to slaughter so many Jews in the 30’s. I don’t know how this happened either.
However, there is one thing that I do know. I know that it is within my power to feed people and I can write about it.
I can’t find nonexistent jobs for them. I can’t get $$$ for their healthcare. I can’t get $$$ for the exorbitant rental prices they endure.
What I can do is offer soups, fresh veggies and fruits every Monday afternoon at 2:00 and I can tell the world on my blog.
For now, because that’s all I can do, I have to be satisfied with this.
