“It is a tragic mix-up when the United States spends $500,000 for every enemy soldier killed, and only $53 annually on the victims of poverty.” -Martin Luther King Jr.

“Take a trip to one of those 24-hour Walmarts on the last day of every month, and you’ll get a glimpse into the lives of low-income families trying to get by.”

This piece from NPR discusses how the recession is impacting families, and how families use government aid. A really interesting read.
