A Wealth and Poverty Perspective 

We live in a time where the poorest of our society have a better lifestyle than the richest of the rich did, 200 years ago. 

Running water, refrigeration in every home. Access to fresh food everywhere. Private bedrooms.

The longest nonfasting period I’ve gone hungry is 5 days. I was in paradise surrounded by wealth and swore never again would I go without. 

I was in my twenties then and it was in Banff Alberta and I saw the first grown man I ever witnessed  bumming money on the streets. I vowed never to do that. 

I know what hungry feels like… However I have never known the horror of, that it might never end… and for that I am blessed.
