Hi, Everyone! The Author of this Entry is SO Spot-On, I wanted to "Like It" about 100 times ;) but there was no "Like" buttom, so on *His Behalf* I'm reblogging it, just so anyone, Whose Life-Path has/IsWill be Similar, may Pass It On, and Please, when Liking It, leave a Comment for His Entry, Not Me. Interestingly, just this afternoon, while listening to the excellent Aussie Podcast: "Big Ideas," dated Tue, Apr 28, 2015, titled: "The Stigma of Poverty," detailed quite well the Socio-Economic, and Health Loss Tolls Poverty "slags" onto those classified "Poor." As I Understood it, the Speaker said in no uncertain terms, Poverty is an Assault on One's Very Core of Being and a Violation of Human Rights, which must be addressed. May I humbly Highly Recommend The Reader access the "Big Ideas" Podcast, all of which are quite good. ;) Namastè, (We're All One), Ubuntu, ("We're All Connected!
