Poverty is the scarcity of common items such as shelter, clothing, and goods—all of which determine one’s quality of life. Poverty is also considered to be the lack of access to opportunities such as education and employment. While many public figures bring this prevailing issue to light, many Americans are oblivious to poverty’s devastating effects to millions of United States citizens. This blog will discuss poverty and the wide range of issues impoverished individuals and families deal with on a daily basis. This blog will not persuade one to address poverty in any certain way. In hope of broadening the influence of this blog, its primary purpose will be to provide objective information on all aspects of poverty. Hopefully, my messages and your comments will cause all to address poverty in their own unique way. I welcome an intense discussion and debate over this topic. With your help, I hope to raise awareness of poverty and put a nail in this wheel of misfortune.
