Blog Action Day 2008 Poverty

Note: From October 12th – 20th posts here will be new but pre-written due to my camping in the mountains of North Carolina where Internet connections are not always available or fast. Thanks for reading!

Today is Blog Action Day for 2008 and the subject that those who are participating will be posting about is poverty.

Poverty is the causative agent of malnutrition and disease around the world, while being a contributor to lack of education and crime in so-called industrialized nations.

It is incumbent upon those of us, both as individuals and countries, who possess the means to alleviate that poverty, to do so to the best of our ability. Those actions raise all of mankind to a higher level, while not doing so brings all of us lower.

About The Word Of Jeff

I'm a freelance writer and blogger who has written for, among others, Tribune Media Services, Suite101 and Athena Guides. As an intrepid traveler I have chronicled some of my travels at The Verbal Vagabond, my travel blog. And, being an avid amateur photographer, I also have a photography blog spotlighting photos I have taken of areas around my hometown at Postcards From Maggie Valley. Speaking of Maggie Valley, that is where my wife, our Golden Retriever/Border Collie mix, Bella, our Orange Tabby, Tigger and I live in a log cabin on a mountain in Western North Carolina, just at the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I enjoy hiking, camping, art, travel, photography (as mentioned above), and an occasional glass of good wine while reading or writing in front of the fireplace.
