Poverty and Community
Print Friendly, PDF & Email
I have always thought that community should help. I grew up in a family where people helped each other get through things. Yet, when i see the people in my neighbourhood asking for money to feed the poor i wish they would go to  a wealthier neighbourhood to ask for the money. I believe people need monetary help. Mostly they need other kinds of help, but still, they need some money. I just think the money should come from people who have a lot of it rather than from one of the poorest neighbourhoods of Montreal. It's like asking the poor to feed the poor. My feelings about helping those less fortunate in my neighbourhood are mixed, ambivalent and paradoxical like so many others. Science does not help you resolve these kinds of emotional conundrums.
