Economic Injustice

The article, Dinner or Dignity: Expecting the Poor to Remain Moral, by LaSha, contains this line, “though morality and survival are not inherently mutually exclusive, poverty’s entry into the equation makes them so.”

LaSha went on to give a convincing argument that challenged my naive notion of being poor does not mean sacrificing one’s moral.  She made me think hard about the life’s choices we face and the compromises rendered under certain economic realities.

What I learned: Life is real; Money has its convenience;  Just don’t hide behind the moral high ground.
