To Heat Or To Eat

When the choice has to be made

between heating

or eating,

you know you are living

in poverty.

Wow...so sad. A few years ago a story broke about some elders on the Navajo Reservation who froze to death because they did not have access to electricity and their wood burning stoves gave out. Should be a basic human right to have both! Nice write, hull.

That's very true, Compass Girl. The variation in wealth these days is kind of obscene.

Short and to the point empathetic read, Hully. In excess, we sometimes forget about those without.

That's very true. It seems to be becoming a more frequent problem.
