In my life time I have witnessed a lot of things that give me problems. Not as many that give me joy thank goodness. Still there are little problems
One of the things that give me an unreal problem is welfare.
Now, I feel that the United States is one of the most powerful countries in the world today. We have it really going on here. You name it we got it. If we don't have it we will get it next or first.
I feel that there should be no hungry people in this country. I feel that for those that have no food, clothes or housing should be helped. After all we send food to other countries.
I have no problem with welfare if it is being handled correctly. Some Americans just can't get a grip on providing for themselves.
Here is how I feel some things could be handled to make things better and easier for our country. If you have some ideas please comment.
Instead of lining people up and giving them boxes of food, why not teach people how to produce their own food? I was taken by that old saying "Give a man a fish and feed him for one day.
Teach a man to fish and feed him for a life time."
Growing up in the south with some good old country folks, I was lucky to have been taught how to feed myself under the worst conditions. Now that I am older I can truely see what a blessing that was. As I walk through the streets of some of the major cities of the United States I meet more and more people in this country that have no idea how to eat if that welfare system stops for some reason.
This country has an abundance of resouces that people just fail to use now. I can't blame the people for that. It has been made to easy for them to walk to the store. To this end I contribute the weakening of character that we see in our youth to the so called advancements of a great country. There is no challenge to living a basic life anymore.
No more do you see adults taking time to teach their chidren how to grow a garden. (Most of them don't know how) If we look at the history of this country you will see this. People survived this United States by learning how to grow and process food and raise animals. This is slowly becoming a lost art due to the welfare system. I would like to challange the people that read this blog to teach a child how to fish and grow a garden. Lets work on making this a better place for all.
