On poverty

To our good friends–

The only ones who are going to get “these people” out of poverty are these persons. You cannot do it for them; you cannot do it to them; you cannot even make them want to do it.

You can, however, meet them as persons and invite them to meet you as a person, and to invite them to help you see how you can help, if they want your help at all.

“Poverty” is a construct, a term made up by those who have to describe those who do not. Might it be pejorative?
