The Ultimate Weapon of Mass Destruction
Poverty is very destructive to human beings! It effects quality of life, lifestyle, life chances, lifespan. It may be described as the ultimate weapon of mass destruction! This is the 21st century and America is very wealthy! California alone has the 5th largest budget in the world! However, for many decades millions of people in this country have lived without being able to regularly meet basic needs…food, clothing, water, housing, and healthcare.
