FDR quote

Yesterday morning I was visiting the FDR memorial and amidst all of his profound sayings was”The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much. It is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.”Nothing could be more poignant in America than that statement today.It has become too common for greed to replace community concern and Draconian measures are daily discussed to take what little the poor have.A society should be judged by how it treats those who struggle merely for survival. All of the harsh rhetoric toward those who are the “least of our brethren”should never be associated with true spirituality. It is in giving that we find meaning not taking away food stamps from women and children.
