“The greatest disease in the West today is not TB or leprosy; it is being unwanted, unloved, and uncared for. We can cure physical diseases with medicine, but the only cure for loneliness, despair, and hopelessness is love. There are many in the world who are dying for a piece of bread but there are many more dying for a little love. The poverty in the West is a different kind of poverty it is not only a poverty of loneliness but also of spirituality. There’s a hunger for love, as there is a hunger for God.” ― Mother Teresa, A Simple Path: Mother Teresa

 

Today’s Ted Talk highlight’s a woman’s plight leaving a shantytown outside of Nairobi. Jacqueline Novogratz tells this story explaining that poverty is not what we think it is. Enjoy!!

Until next time…
