Silent Wars



"Today is International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.

Poverty does not explode like bombs or boom like gunfire.

We know everything about poor people: what they don’t work at, what they don’t eat, how much they don’t weight, how much they don’t grow, what they don’t think, how often they don’t vote, and what they don’t believe in.

The only thing left to learn is why poor people are poor.

Could it be because we are clothed by their nakedness and nourished by their hunger?"

~Eduardo Galeano, Children of the Days
