My mom and I were riding in the car listening to the christian radio and the man was saying how in America lots of people are living in poverty. I can't remember the percentage. Than he went on to say that to be classified as povery in America you make less then 22,000 a year..... 22,000 thats about 1,800 a month. My mind immediately thought of my sweet little Regita and her family who makes 15.00 a month.
$15.00 a month
I thought of the the many many children in the third world that live on a dollar a day....360 a year not 22,000. I do feel bad for the people in America that stuggle to put food on the table. I know a family we are helping from our church that struggle with not having enough money. But how can we call 22,000 a year poverty when familys are living on a dollar a day in other countries?
It just kind of made me think. Hope it does you too.
