Poverty - All Of These Things, Need Not Be...
Blog Action Day 08 - Poverty
Poverty - all of these things, need not be...
In a world of plenty, where some have only a scant,
these things, need not be.
A lack of the means of providing material needs or comforts,
All of these things, need not be.
Un-productiveness, for lack of mentoring,
need not be.
Neediness is not necessary,
and need not be.
Destitution is unacceptable,
and need not be.
Poverty - These Things are Unacceptable!
Is a road that knows many travelers...
and must needs be.
IF there were not those, with great need, then not one of us would ever come to know - who we really are, and the depths of our own souls.
Would you lift up the down trodden, to where you have found comfort, rest and peace?
Would you embrace a reduced brother, to build up his knowledge; about the worth of a soul?
Would you give of yourself, and of your means to others; even upon finding that in doing so - you, yourself and your own, are now equal?
Poverty - Blog Action Day 08
Pride is, "the great stumbling block" to all of these things;
for until we truly understand all of our equality, before God... all of these things, will STILL be.
"When ye have done it unto the least of these... ",
ye have done it - unto Yourself.
Poverty - In our own backyard. Certainly, we ALL can DO MORE!

Three Billion People Are Living In Poverty... Hands
Write-On! Acknowledgements, Requests and Final Thoughts - on Poverty:
I only found out about Blog Action Day, yesterday - when a fellow blogger friend, A Good Husband, tweeted his own post about Poverty - on twitter. Like a good twitter friend, I followed his link and read his blog post. I was so touched by it, that I then decided to StumbleUpon it, and review it...
Needless to say, he soon learned that not only had I commented on the actual post about poverty, but that I did the StumbleUpon thing, too. Naturally - he sent out a tweet back to me, to say "thank you". He also encouraged me to join him, today - for Blog Action Day 08. Long story short, I checked out what all this action day buzz was about, and the rest is now my-story!
I admit it - I am a sucker for a cause. Not just any cause mind you. The issue of Poverty, and its many many facets, is something that from my own, very personal corner - can somewhat relate to. I believe that Poverty has many faces, to different people, who are living in different circumstances, and who have varying perspectives. I am humbled, to add my very small voice to this topic, and encourage each one of us to try, and do just a little bit better - in doing more good - in the world.
Since I am just now finding out about this great blogging event, and would like to feature other Blog Action Day Bloggers, submissions on Poverty - here with my own contribution - I will be adding these link as I become aware of them....
Thumbs-Up are always appreciated:-)
