This was a beautiful statement...<quoted text>What world do you live in that you don't know about poverty stricken areas of this country.
You might want to start by looking at the Appalachia area today. If I'm not mistaken, this is near where Annie grew up. There is still no running water, no indoor toilets, no electricity in many of these mountain homes.
But instead of taking a compassionate look at the poverty which some have had to withstand, you make fun, call them liars, and berate them as much as possible.
I was wrong. I don't think there's a thing left inside of you that is good or decent or compassionate.
Here's an article about that poverty. If it doesn't stir your hear, you're not worth talking to.
"There is a lesson here that possessions, careers and carefully landscaped properties do not bring happiness. It is something that comes from within."
I remember once when my shoes were falling apart...those soles were flapping with each step that I took. I remember even more though the look of pain on my mothers face when she told me that I would have to wear them another couple of weeks...until payday.
I never really knew how poor that we were...all of our neighbors were just like us.
Remember that old saying...didn't have a pot to piss in??? LOL
I remember...life was good!
