Not only are the poor always with us but they are all over the world. From what I can tell - by comparison - there's “poor” and there's PO!
P-O … have to break off the word, because some people can't afford the last two letters.
Growing up in my home in Liberty City / Miami, Florida, we were considered “financially disadvantaged”. When I was a child we lived in the “projects” - short for federal housing projects, which is an initiative of the U.S. Government to house people with low income who could not afford to buy their own home or pay rent at the current market rates for a nice neighborhood. You could say we were “poor” but bet there are people in other countries who would beg to differ.
America has poor people. Other countries have PO PEOPLE!!!
- For those who live outside of the United States of America – does your government provide some sort of housing for the poor?
- How are the less fortunate treated where you live?
