  • Being Poor in the World's Richest Country | Short Documentary
    In 2019, 43 million people in the United States lived below the poverty line, twice as many as it was fifty years before. 1.5 million children were homeless, three times more than during the Great Depression in the 1930s. Entire families are tossed from one place to another to work unstable jobs that barely allow them to survive.

    This is heartwrenching to watch...That this is happenning in a world with the abundance to prevent it is sad beyond words.
    To all of us , fortunate enough to be able to pay the bills and keep a roof over our heads, whether you own a home or rent,
    its important to have gratitude for the blessings that are present in ur life and compassion for those less fortunate..

    This is why I don't like watching people glorifying van life. I've seen the struggle. I know some individuals who are rich and live in their vehicle and post on social media for likes. I attended a gym in an affluent neighborhood, and one of the ladies definitely came for a shower and lived in her vehicle. It was heart-wrenching. I wasn't sure if I should offer her anything as I thought she might have a sense of normalcy and belonging during her gym time.

    Who told you that USA is the richest in the world? USA has the biggest foreign debt. According to the World Bank, the U.S. has the biggest foreign debt: it is $31.91 trillion, or 99% of GDP. So living in debt is poverty.
