It saddens me to think that those who occupy those hallowed halls of Congress have no concern for anyone except themselves and are trying to cut food stamp assistance.
There are some children in our city who go to bed hungry every night. This is occurring all over our state and country. Could Congress be less concerned about stocking its own pantry and become concerned about the “least of these”? Every government program has those who abuse the system. It always has been that way, and it will continue.
The vast majority of honest people who desperately need the help should not be penalized for the actions of a few. Until someone in Congress has a close friend or family member requiring such assistance, the haves will continue to look away from the have-nots. Our country was built on freedom, equality and a reverence to godly actions. How godly is it for those who have much to ignore those less fortunate?
We sing and speak the words “God Bless America” on many occasions. Are these words sung or spoken with our eyes closed to the needs of others?
