Part 2) Something I feel that is very important in this day in age and something that I feel is very overlooked is poverty. The United States continues to have one of the highest relative child poverty rates among all developed countries. 1 billion children worldwide are living in poverty. According to UNICEF, 22,000 children die each day due to poverty. In fact, 870 million people worldwide do not have enough food to eat. Food banks are especially important in providing food for people that can’t afford it themselves. I feel like this topic is very important and is worth understanding because we as a country need to stick together and help each other out. There are so many ways that the US is able to help out other countries that are way deeper in poverty than we are, but we just don't do as much as we should. We do a lot, but I feel like we could do more. We should all start making moves to better this world, together, as a whole. I stumbled upon a poem that was very short and to the point (see below).
