Today the government released a report from the Census Bureau reporting that the percentage of Americans in poverty has risen to 14.3% in 2009, the highest in decades.
As a reminder from one of my posts from back in July, what follows is a portion of Ann Curry's Dateline report on poverty in America.
I know I have talked about this before, but I don't believe I can say enough that those of us that have plenty, need to help those who don't. Please give to a charity this month that helps those living in poverty. I will be donating food to our local food pantry.
