What is the Standard for Poverty?

“ The poor ye have always with you.” { John 12: 8 }


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?

Happy Halloween! “Trick or Treat for UNICEF!” #BeScaryGood

When I was young there was a campaign/advertisement that came on television every year around or near the time to celebrate Halloween. It went like this: Children would knock on the door and when the neighbor opened their door, instead of asking for candy the kids would shout:

Trick or Treat for UNICEF!

The campaign began in 1950.  Certainly made an imprint in my mind. The idea was to get people to donate to the cause of helping children all over the world. This October 2017 will be the 67th year. I liked the idea THEN and like it NOW. Sharing this precious gem found via the UNICEF Tumblr blog. No doubt there are all kinds of ways one can contribute to such a worthy cause.

UNICEF:
Books, pencils, playgrounds, crayons – not all children will have access to these things going back to school. But they will be exposed to violence: http://uni.cf/1AbEGqt


Bless the children always.  Have to keep this charity work on the radar.  Always embrace an opportunity, especially when it's a holiday, and find a means to extend charity to those less fortunate. Trick or Treat for UNICEF!!
