Poverty impairs brain function like a stroke
I wonder how many potential Einsteins—or Beethovens or Marie Curies or Mother Teresas or Mohandas Ghandis or Martin Luther Kings—struggle for survival, unable to follow the yearning of their hearts. I wonder how many millions of good, productive, loving people—people who would bless their world—are locked into spending all their strength battling desperate personal conditions.
Are we not all poorer when one of us is poor? Is there anything that would improve us all as much as dragging poverty to its knees?
