Blog Action Day 2008 Poverty

Note: From October 12th - 20th posts here will be new but pre-written due to my camping in the mountains of North Carolina where Internet connections are not always available or fast. Thanks for reading!

Today is Blog Action Day for 2008 and the subject that those who are participating will be posting about is poverty.

Poverty is the causative agent of malnutrition and disease around the world, while being a contributor to lack of education and crime in so-called industrialized nations.

It is incumbent upon those of us, both as individuals and countries, who possess the means to alleviate that poverty, to do so to the best of our ability. Those actions raise all of mankind to a higher level, while not doing so brings all of us lower.
