october 15th.

today is blog action day, a day where bloggers from around the world take time out to focus on an issue grander than themselves, with the hope that a global discussion will ensue..

noun. the state or condition of having little or no money, goods, or means of support. condition of being poor. indigence. destitution. need. want. a state of privation and lack of necessities. serious lack of the means for proper existence. a state of having absolutely none of the necessities of life. implies that help or relief is necessary. meagerness.

i am not going to use this as a platform to shove politics at people. regardless of who you are and what you stand for, there is an unfathomable number of people around the world living-and
dying- in poverty. it is a condition that has no regard for race, creed, or gender..and that is something that we should not continue to ignore.

so..i challenge you:
do something.
research issues. research politicians. research relief organizations. volunteer. give something of yourself, that others may
