Being poor, working hard and enjoying life and accepting life as it is....is great.

Being poor and living off of welfare, gov housing and foodstamps for generations and enjoying life is another thing.

We have always and will forever have poor people. It is a relative word that denotes someone who has less than another. People are poor for a myriad of reasons and not always by their own fault. How do you distinguish those who are there by happenstance from those who chose to be there? My guess is only a minority of them WANT to be poor. Most feel they have no choice and have lost faith or hope in their situation. And being handicap has little to do with it as there are many handicap who are very well off if not rich.
So what are we to do? Give them hope and build on their faith. Will that eradicate the poor? No. You can only help those who decide to help themselves. So you offer programs to help them do that.
So true.
