what it's like now!

on the very first night of my group in october i was told one thing. "poverty is a lack of resources, nothing more!" then i was asked to define "what it's like now"
i was given a resource table listing 11 resources
  • financial
  • emotional
  • mental
  • language
  • social support
  • physical
  • spirtual
  • integrity and trust
  • motivation and persistence
  • relationships/role models
  • knowledge of hidden rules
  • and then i was asked to score each from 1 to 5.
  • 1 = urgent/crisis
  • 2 = vulnerable/high risk
  • 3 = stable
  • 4 = safe/secure
  • 5 = thriving/giving back
  • it was the beginning of really trying to understand the now! so what does the now look like here? i pass this little mission every morning on my way to take star to school! i am in love with the statues in their yard! i am in love with their little white building! i especially love that it is a mission! (note to self, work on a mission statement!) loving now!
