Well, hot damn, Tom, congratulations. With those two $500 gifts, you’ve solved poverty in America.
I gotta tell ya, though, that the people at the bottom don’t want your charity.
My father was placed in a home. Shortly after, we were unable to help with food for him because of financial constraints. I suggested meals on wheels and a few other ways of making ends meet and he said, and I quote, “I would rather starve.”
We poor, tired, huddled masses don’t want your donations. We want the ways and the means to pay our own way.
…so maybe some day, we can make posts like the one you just made so we can feel good about what we’ve done.
