Poor People Matter!

Human service, the taking care of one another, is the highest calling. The poor are not the objects of our affections but the fellow travelers just like us and they have much to give, their thoughts, their ideas. In the final analysis, the rich must not ignore the poor because both rich and poor are tied in a single garment of destiny. All life is interrelated, and all men are interdependent. The agony of the poor diminishes the rich, and the salvation of the poor enlarges the rich. We are inevitably our brothers’ keeper. In other words, the contract between people, young and old, across generations, to be decent to one another is the thread by which we must live.

~Dr. Martin Luther King. Jr.                 





You may shoot me with your words, You may cut me with your eyes, You may kill me with your hatefulness, But still, like air, I'll rise.

~Dr. Maya Angelou
