A state of economic inequality in which some children grow up with limited or even no access to the resources they need to develop into healthy and productive adults, including adequate food, shelter, medical care, and education. These children may be members of working poor families or they may be orphans sometimes left to their own devices in regions with little government support for them. The cycle of poverty generally follows these children throughout their lives, and they often have statistically high chances of becoming poor adults as well.

As a human being I see. I see things perhaps others don't see. Both an observer and a participant in American life.


For me, a trip to the grocery store at 9 pm is a last minute recipe for "company coming" - though this a ritual for families living on the edge of poverty. This very store where I see evidence of half eaten food stashed in the aisle from furtive consumption.

Hollywood Beauty, Fitness and Lifestyle Expert Donna Spangler writes: Today we went to Sir Recording Studio, a lovely building on Sunset Boulevard, where I shot a public service announcement segment for Love Can Initiative, a wonderful charitable organization that provides basic support for children from low-income families.
