Trenton, I think you need to go into Politics, this is where you're heart is at. Go make that difference. All good stuff.
I guess my only contribution is: When I was in school, and when I meet people, I seem to gravitate towards the Underdog, been told this a # of times by others who have noticed. I NEVER look at somene's social status, means nothing to me. But I AM guilty of looking at their choices in life. And I teach my kids to be KIND to all children who are beaten down in school, appear to have no friends. To be their friend, not to worry about the stigma -because sometimes all it takes is ONE GOOD FRIEND in life who sticks by you -helps with that self -esteem that has been destroyed at home- to change your life & set you on a good path, enabling you to make better choices.
One of my closer friends is a woman who was released from Foster Care as the youngest child -allowed to be adopted, 2 of her siblings died by the hands of her natural parents, 4 others escaped . She has fared the best of them all -maybe because she was the youngest, less to remember, and got that "good" home.
My son just learned of his hiring for a Summer Camp this summer where he will be a Counselor working with these type kids, all inner city with many problems. He lives to make a difference in people's lives, more so than me but his influenece is all about "Jesus". I know they need more than that.
Yes, we all need more empathy & compassion.
