For most of us, â€śthe poorâ€ť are a bunch of people who inhabit a world
that we rarely venture into. They lack what we have and use illegal
means to try obtaining some of our wealth. We are warned that if we
wander into their world we may become a target for assault or robbery.
So, as much as possible, we stay away. The other image that comes to
mind is of a people in a distant land, starving with hunger, who need
our help to survive. Whichever way we look at them, we tend to see
their poverty before we see their humanity.
