I have never been even a little bit rich. However, I had a very good education, and I helped people for quite a long time. Education is one of the best ways to get out of real poverty. But I suspect that in many places in the world, there is no free education.
Do you remember the school in Africa that Oprah created? There is a reason for that, and a purpose. Africa is still struggling for food, medicine and education. Often there is no way to get anywhere except by walking. I walked to school when I was young, but my school wasn't but three streets away. There was one period of my young life that I couldn't walk to school. But we had a free bus ride.
How do the impoverished countries of the world become part of a real Global Community? Only if we make sure that education, good food, and necessary medicine. It is up to those of us who can contribute, even in small ways.
