Excellent article. To bad so many have turned on the poor and needy. I call it
blaming the poor for being poor. Many view the poor as lazy, unmotivated, and
unwilling to work. If you don't believe me go on line and read the posts
on any article related to the economy. Some people want to pick and choose
who they feel is deserving of their charity.
Pres. Monson's ministry has been much of the inspiration driving my own
humble attempts to reduce human suffering and serve those in need. Guided by his
teachings, and even more by his actions, I’ve been blessed to help
establish dozens of NGOs now in over 30 nations, which collectively raised more
than $30 million in 2012 alone. Mormon principles of being “anxiously
engaged in a good cause,“ with the capacity to empower the poorest of the
poor around the globe has been my life’s calling since the 1970s. With the
Prophet as a role model, I have learned there are no limits to how many impacts
we can have using our own free will while being inspired by the Lord.
