Today is Blog Action Day where bloggers "gather" together to discuss proverty. What is poverty? When does one live in poverty? Is it relative? Is there poverty of the physical as well as the poverty of the soul?
I am still impressed by the teacher who asked if being homeless was a choice. Would anyone choose to be homeless? Run out of choices we do what we have to do.
I think of the poorest county in America. Up in South Dakota, the President even came to visit. Choice?
I do not believe that people can even speak intelligently about poverty and social aliments if they come from dominate culture. The world view is too askew.
