"Overcoming poverty is not a task of charity, it is an act of justice. Like Slavery and Apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man-made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings. Sometimes it falls on a generation to be great. YOU can be that great generation. Let your greatness blossom.” ― Nelson Mandela

It saddens me that we live in a society based off of individualistic minded elites who is only worry about keeping and sustaining their wealth through funding wars instead of trying to bring the world together by donating barely a quarter of the money it takes to fund a war to end world poverty

Nearly half of the world’s population — more than 3 billion people — live on less than $2.50 a day. More than 1.3 billion live in extreme poverty (less than $1.25 a day). If you are reading this, you are one the very fortunate.
How did societies views of the homeless and those who are struggling change so drastically? What happened to the concept of helping our fellow man? There is a stereotype imposed on all homeless, that they got themselves in that situation because of the poor choices they made (normally we relate it to drug use), which may be true for some, but certainly not all. Many of those in poverty had an unfortunate, unexpected incident that forced them into poverty. These people should be helped and heard.
