Was I aware of this?

one in two americans are poor or low income

What does this say about our nation? What does this mean for us? How does this affect our choices? How does this affect how we educate our citizens? How does this affect our children?

One of the quotes from the article says, “The reality is that prospects for the poor and the near poor are dismal,” he said. “If Congress and the states make further cuts, we can expect the number of poor and low-income families to rise for the next several years.”

Are we okay with this? As a follower of Jesus… I have a hard time believing that ignoring these facts is what he would have done.

Just some thoughts…

Not sure what I think…
