"We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty."
Ah, late again with this post.
Not one of the best notes to start off the weekend with, but its something to think about. We all know what poverty is. By now, we've all seen the face of the homeless. But what about the people in our homes? We've heard (and probably seen) the poorest man, smile and enjoy his morsel of bread that is supposed to last him for a few days. Poets have called them richer than the richest of men. On the contrary, we've seen people with all the food they have, starve, binge, diet and ungratefully shun everything they're blessed with. If that isn't living in poverty, I don't know what is. It is the poverty of the soul that troubles the most and paid attention to the least.
ps. I have to go for a retreat this weekend and will be posting again sometime around next week. Thank you for stopping by and all the wonderful comments on my previous shot. I was glad to see it meant something to a few people. Have a good weekend!
