“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it–always.”
― Mahatma Gandhi

I watched this Frontline episode this past week. I’ve joked in the past that we are poor, but never again. Not after watching this. I’ve lived in truly poverty stricken areas of the globe before but it’s been a while and I honestly think I forget how grim it was for the members of my various communities, even those who bore hardship with stunning grace and resilience. My pay might be small now, and about to go from regular to project based, but except for a couple of hurricanes disrupting things in my teens, I have never gone hungry in my life. I have clothes on my back, a roof over my head, and the ability to provide for myself, I am never going to refer to myself as poor again unless I am facing the challenges these kids face. Perspective. Also looking into some volunteer opportunities this summer because I can do more.
I’d try some of these recipes.
