Poverty isn’t a money problem for poor people; poverty (in the richest country in the world) is a problem with our distribution of resources. Poverty is the problem of inequality. Poverty is a problem because the rich hoard their resources. Poverty is a problem because corporations hoard cash while Americans remain unemployed. Poverty is a problem because of corporate welfare. Poverty is a problem because of unethical job creators. The problem isn’t because poor people are poor; the problem is because the rich never think they are rich enough.
“Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”
Roald Dahl, writer, 1978.
It is always the simple things that change our lives. And these things never happen when you are looking for them to happen.
—Donald Miller (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
