Living on One Dollar
I can recommend the film "Living on One Dollar". I think the concept that could have been (not the point of the film) that small changes, or reliefs, as it were, being more effective, could have been further expounded. The film mentions it, our personal responsibility to help one person, but also, the owness is upon the "haves" for the "have nots". Why? We are more connected than what we might believe. And this isn't a special fate for special people. The film does a great job of making the poverty stricken, human, not different, not a special brand of person that poverty magnetizes (new word) to, but real people, with real dreams, and survive on, often, on less than one dollar a day.
