Mariela’s thoughts

When visiting sister Peggy this evening, there were so many things running through my mind. One profound statement she made included asking us all who we are. At first thought, I am this amazing accomplished person but then quickly realized that to define or think of one self in such basic terms did not seem “amazing” enough.

Poverty signifies a deficiency, a reduction or absence of an essential commodity of life. As a society in the United States, I feel as though we are impoverished in so many ways: nutrition, wealth and education. There is a great disparity among the wealthy and poorest of our nation. Through education many are able to create better lives, but in our society, many are starved for education.
