Poverty is a worldwide phenomenon. However, it sometimes can be lost in the shuffle when contemplating other domestic problems. In Mohn’s article, he highlights a statistic that half of American adults will experience poverty by the time they turn 65. To me, this fact is startling when viewed through the lens that America is a land of opportunity, a land of wealth. What I admire about this article is the call to the American people that “change starts with you.” Even if contributions are on a small scale, every bit can help.
