thoughts on 2013

Through my time on this earth, and through my profession, I have learned a lot about poverty and politics.

 

I’ve seen people in desperate situations. 

And I’ve learned that the thing about being desperate is that is causes people to turn to God. 

I’ve learned that

when you’re rich you must fight pride,

and when you’re poor you must fight bitterness. 

I’ve learned that when we feel threatened, we mistreat people. 

That comparison is the thief of joy. 

and that the hardest thing about having nothing, is having nothing to give.
