Welfare - Poverty Category. Something to think about. Parks & zoos in this country usually have signs that ask us "Please Do Not Feed the Animals." The stated reason for this policy is because "The animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."

Let's Help Them Where They Are

from The Gray Area:

Last weekend I spoke to the Director of a small trade school in Honduras. I asked him about the migrant caravan currently traveling to our country. He told me the following:

1. The caravan is primarily made up of truly desperate people fleeing poverty and crime in Honduras and other countries in Central America.

2. This caravan is not organically developed from need, but is organized and financed by political interests and criminals.

3. His trade school educates over 1000 young people in Honduras and will graduate 100 this year. He interviews each of his graduates to talk to them about what they do next. He said 20 of the 100 plan to go to the US and enter the country illegally. He tries to convince them to take their new skills and start a business or get a job in their own country to improve the situation at home.

The following video gets to that point in a very simple clear way.

"Lets help them where they are."
