Those of you who know my age (57) and were motivated to do the math already know that I grew up in the late 50s and 60s, reaching young adulthood in the early 70s. Besides all the good times to be had during those tumultuous times (rock n' roll, chemistry experiments etc), this was an age in which we looked to make America, and the rest of the world, a better place. I was influenced by the political movements of the time, the music, the art, the culture and the overwhelming sense that we could make a difference for those less fortunate than ourselves. Where did that faith and hope go?
I am saddened by the some of the attitudes in this country regarding the poor.
I am angry, no, furious, about the political machinations which will affect anti-poverty programs in this country.
My husband is so articulate, and I am going to link to a recent post of his...I cannot do justice to this issue as well as he. they will always be among us Please take some time to read this, and do what you can to even the playing field in your part of the world. We are so fortunate.
