“Poor people cannot rely on government to come to help you in times of need,”You have to get your education. Then nobody can control your destiny.”
I think I agree. What do you think?
I think the Round Mound of Rebound is pretty smart sometimes.
I think it’s true that getting an education can help control your destiny, but sometimes you still need help on occasion.
Or, as is our case, while pursuing years and years of education to get a master’s and PhD, you might need help during that time, in the form of insurance to cover the delivery of a baby:)
However, for the most part, I think that statement is good — getting an education is vital.
True that Cara! In Michigan we call that Michild! And two of our children were born with MiChild’s help.
I am pro-help as long as it gives dignity and does not steal it.
🙂 Cara’s my friend!

It’s a both/and, yes, we have obligations of personal responsibility, but there is also the fact that sin has destroyed the shalom of our communities in such a way, that for some, just “trying hard,” will never be enough. IE– I work in an inner-city school, even if my kids apply themselves to the best of their ability, many will never make it out of poverty. We are actually debating this a lot on our blog http://doxxa.wordpress.com check out the Pie & Prostitution post, it deals with this issue fairly extensively.
I agree Amy, but I think Charles has spoken a wise word especially for African Americans…A lot of the current policy is just another way that a majority oppresses those they do not truly want to deal with.
It is also true that in our urban areas the influence of gansta lifestyle and endemic fatherlessness has had an insidious effect on our children in the cities. These kids need to be given a message of achievement and respect. They also need to understand that some of them are in a self imposed backward movement from the achievements of the Civil-rights movement.
Education I think is the key to freedom…
True freedom that can not be granted or stolen by ruling class rich people…
