How unfortunate that mankind still favors this type of bullying behavior. I guess it's the only way most can feel good about themselves. How sad. Great hub and message creativeone59. Voted up marked useful, and beautiful.

To have a loving heart for the poor is what God expects of us.To look down on another is cruel and unjust.Thank you for always sharing your love for your fellow man.

Cheers

God bless Faye. The poor are oppressed by the money, the power. Man cannot use power wisely and must be reminded constantly.
