Poverty and getting old; worst of all is the Poverty of L’esprit. We must look out for our young people in these dark times of COVID-19 and assist them onto the path of life that education gives you. It may not be the answer to hopelessness or deep depression but it is an avenue to explore. Poverty is cruel and merciless.

Have you ever experienced real poverty? the poverty that you smoke too much; you take alcohol, you have accommodation but you just get old and cannot cope with the reality of no longer being healthy and able, just tired, lonely and desperate.  This is the poverty of the spirit. 

Oprah’s 5 minute video suggests and I agree that what is essential is to identify is those vulnerable to poverty at a young age, educate them and then encourage them to attain what is “whole” not perfection, just “Whole”.
