I keep starting this post and erasing it. Eloquence is escaping me so I will cut to the chase.
It is more difficult to fight poverty in a rich country than in a poor one.
~ Mother Teresa ~
There is no virtue in being financially poor...no sin in being rich. It is "poverty of spirit"--humility and compassion--that is required of each of us to end financial poverty once and for all. Regardless of what you call the Divine you worship, without grace from that One, any of us could be walking without shoes--going hungry all day and night.
It's time we all had enough.
