Get involved to help those less fortunate

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion For the next few weeks, people around the country will be participating in the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival. In fact, people in 37 state capitals marched on the first marching Monday of the campaign.  Two things I like about this revival of Martin Luther King’s ideas are, first, people of all types and stripes are involved. People representing hunger, housing and equality issues are all gathering together to learn from each other.  Second, when our leaders show themselves as less than moral individuals, we the people need to stand up for the good of our country. Reading “1776” by David McCullough reminds me that at that time, people of courage, clear vision and conviction were needed to create the country we love. As in the past, people with those traits must make themselves heard and seen to continue our representative democracy.Today, we have to fight against the powerful influence of money in our government, of forces that seek to divide us, and of falsehoods spoken as truths. Some of the meetings of the Poor People’s Campaign are called Teaching Tuesdays, an opportunity to speak on many ideas, not turn away from opposing ideas, to contribute to the greater good, not just their own issue.Why did I join this campaign? Because, in addition to the Scotia-Glenville Food Pantry and large SICM food pantry, we now have a food pantry and weekend food bags in our local school. We are a very rich country where 61 percent of New York’s children are poor or low-income (compared to 52 percent nationally).  That’s why I joined. There’s no excuse anyone can offer that should allow this to happen. There’s no political or party excuse that should allow this to happen. It’s time.
