Have you ever been hungry but didn't have money to buy even piece of bread. Or felt so sick that you need to go to the doctor but you can't afford it. Many families wake up every morning knowing that they can't bring food to the table for their children to eat, or take their sick child to the doctor but can't because they can't afford it. I think that poverty is a big issue but only a few are doing something about it. In my opinion, poverty should be the first issue to address in many countries. Instead of spending all that money on military and investing on the wealthy people only, they should start helping the poor and sick. The governments from all the countries should spend more money and time trying to end poverty instead of making weapons and wars. If all the money and time that went in to the military were spent helping the poor and sick all these families would be able to live a better and more suitable life then what they are living right now. Most of the time wars are the beginning of a family being poor. Imagine all the innocent that lost their home and all they have ever work for because of the war we just had a couple of years ago. They had everything ad the war destroyed it all. With that being said, what society don't understand is that survival of the fitted isn't the way of life anymore. Everyday the rich gets richer while the poor gets poorer. If the rich started giving more to the needed we would have less people being poor. And with less…

Keep Our Children and Future Generations Out of Poverty
Poverty, a nasty seven letter word that gets little to no attention. It gets swept under the carpet, or “don’t look, it will go away on its own”. Even the President of the United States rarely has used the word poverty in his speeches.

existence of poverty. As well, many people consider poverty to be a financial problem however; I believe it's a social problem as well. Status and stigma are huge factors in North American situations of poverty but not much attention is given to correcting these issues and poverty is attacked mainly by throwing money at it where is at.
If you throw money at someone in need who trickled down into poverty due to, say, mental health issues, the money won't help very much until the person in poverty is treated…

In a world as diverse as plant Earth, there are many aspects of the media that help define who people are and what they decide to become. Journalism is one of many areas in the huge spectrum of media and communication. Journalism is the timely reporting of events at the local, provincial, national and international levels and it has played a major role in shaping my life as a citizen, student, and a career-seeking individual.

profound effect on my life. I traveled to that poverty-stricken country hoping to make a difference in people's lives; however, they made more of a difference in mine. Although, I had opposed on going on this trip I am thankful that it was otherwise. The experience changed my outlook on faith in God, on love for fellow people, and on the value of things. The people in the community had so little, yet they were content. In absolute poverty, these people put their will in God's hands. Because all…

Decades ago the rate of young black men in the workforce, ages 16-24, declined. The unemployment rate went up and it all seemed due to welfare liberalism. (Schwarz, J. E. (1990). Back in the 50s and 60s disincentives in the workplace cause many to slow in labor force, however, in the black race the numbers were higher compared to the white race.…

There are many who believe that some of these news sources are influenced by the government or companies who have hidden agendas or will benefit from a false representation of the story. However, those who believe this and go against mainstream media and news sources are…

Not only does it keep us up to date on current events, but it is the pulse on society’s beating heart.
