“He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the LORD; and that which he hath given will he pay him again.” In Waco, Texas, the population of people living in poverty is 27.4%. I see it, and it hurts. Going to Walmart last week I saw a homeless man who sits at the same spot every day and begs. If I could do what I loved most I would be able to help not only that man but every other who is struggling. I wouldn’t just want to get them some food or a place to stay. I would want them to learn, and help them get a career and be able to have what they need. Just show them someone loves them and believes in them. Really give them a new chance. Sadly I don’t fit the “rich” Baylor stereotype but I have great parents who are willing to give up everything to see I have a better opportunity than them. For now I am barely scrapping by but volunteer when I am able. However, there is one way I know for a fact I can help them. Every day I work hard to be the best student I can be. That is what I want to do until I know without a doubt I am in a position to help all of my brothers and sisters of God. Enable them to pull themselves out of the dirt and get all things every person deserves to have.
