    Women constitute HALF the world’s population, perform nearly TWO THIRDS of the world’s work, receive ONE TENTH of the world’s income, own less than ONE HUNDREDTH of the world’s wealth.

    “Poverty is not a character failing or a lack of motivation. Poverty is a shortage of money.”

    Barbara Ehrenreich

    It has been said that the love of money is the root of all evil. The want of money is so quite as truly.
    Samuel Butler

    The character building virtues of self help are regularly preached by those who do not want to give help to those in desperate need.
    Eva Figes

    Post 072,, Supergold,, Oh ,so true .

    We never know whats beneath the surface ,,so love and compassion,, and Bible principals  go a long way ..

    A small act of kindness ,,,whether recognized or not, is what makes it a better place, for all of us

     

    And in the end ,,,we all face the same problems in different ways ..

     

     

     

    Cheers From Kai
