    For those of you who don't know what poor is let me tell you

    when I was young we had cambels soup with crackers or bread. When things became worse my siblims and myself had milk and bread in a bowl.
    At no time did I feel undernurished.
    In fact we never felt poor.
    My family was dirt poor. But as a child I never felt poor at all.
    The point I'm trying to make is I wanted to make sure my life would be better.
    I worked my butt off and saved everything I made.
    I had goals and ambitions that my family never had.
    I could not have money for my lunch at school,so I washed cafeteria dishes.
    I never ever felt I was poor. I only wanted to better myself well beyond what my parents provided.
    My family for a short time was on welfare. We recieved food and benefits from the Salvation Army as well.
    All trhis due to a gun shot to my dad while we were hunting rabbits. I was 9 years old.

    So, what is my bottom line?
    Everyone can accomplish things they never thought possible if they only had a drive, ambition and goals in life.

    I had all three things and did very well for myself and my family.

    P.S. We give a great deal of money every year for those in need.

    God will bless those ten times over for helping others in need. My family has been blessed.
