Being Poor

Posted by thisisjay , 20 September 2012 · 61 views

John Scazi wrote this essay that was linked to a Cnn article today. The essay is called "Being Poor." I found it on their website tonight. I just wanted to share it with you guys. It's really good and brought up quite a few memories.

P.S. It's not very long.

This is so sad. It's something I fear a lot (being poor) and I only hope no body will ever have to become familiar with this life-style because once in it in America, there is not a huge chance of getting back out of it....

I read the essay and it made sense to me as I grocery shopped. Thank you for sharing it!
