People do not choose poverty

There are some who believe that the poor sit around a campfire and choose to be indolent and to take money from others while contributing nothing. This is based on the premise that poverty is a choice, but I do not adhere to this belief.I have personally through the years worked with those who understand the plight of poverty, and the struggles merely to survive. The choices which are minimal to begin with, are even further curtailed in severe economic times as the one we are now experiencing. The words of the Prophet which fostered concern for the poor not disdain remain the same today” If you did it for the least of my brethren you did it for me.”
