60 Minutes does a piece about poverty in Amerika. While the government solution is to throw more money at the problem it is clear that there just continues to be more folks in need of assistance.
Everyone wants to believe that everything is getting better, but I continue to feel that sense of dread in me that as soon as I give in and give the green light, all hell is going to break loose.
