How would you end poverty?

set_martin_luther_king_quote time always right to do what is right

Do you believe that? It is always the right time to roll up our sleeves and do the difficult work of doing the right thing.

People ask; governments ask; you ask, “How can we end poverty?” I don’t know the full answer, but I think it begins with this – caring for one person at a time, and acting on the suffering you see. It ends by using the beautiful minds God gave us to come up with solutions to the problem. Many have already, but are we really listening to what they have to say, or are many saying by their inaction on solving poverty that it really doesn’t matter to them? Those who say the problem of poverty is not a top priority, can they look into the eyes of a child who is poor and say they don’t matter? Poverty will only truly begin to end as we all see that suffering soul and say, “Me voici.” – “Here I am.”

About osborne2029

I enjoy spending time with people just having a coffee or talking about life, philosophy, religion, politics or sharing a favorite joke or story. We learn from one another as we interact and share our joys, challenges and even our times of sadness. I enjoy reading, writing, singing and sharing in the blessing of community whether that is one on one or in groups. I'm married and am powned by two kitties named Sir William of Lounge a.k.a. Sir Lounge a Lot and Princess Catherine of Chaos a.k.a. Her Royal Highness Catherine of Englehart. I m in an M.A.-Ph.D program with St. James the Elder Theological Seminary to train to become a psychotherapist and priest. Let us pray for and reach out to each other with kindness, love and an embracing compassion. We can working together be servants with two open hands to those in need so that hate, indifference and inequality would lose and love will win. The peace and abounding joy of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
