American Dream: Humble Pie--EAT IT! (Blog Action Day)
In conjunction with Blog Action Day, I repost from Social Seppuku the video (3:54) that Jess Wundrem created from M. Yu's post. The United States faces an economic meltdown. How does this relate with the state of the world?
Blog Action Day is an annual nonprofit event to unite the world’s bloggers, podcasters and videocasters to post about the same issue on the same day to raise awareness and trigger a global discussion. This year's topic is "Poverty." If a picture is worth 1000 words, this video is worth 700 billion. In fact, not even knowing M. Yu--nor if s/he is gay or straight--I proposed. It was love at first viewing.
Caveat: The world is not pretty or pleasant for many people. Expect to see that in the video. Don't watch it unless you're prepared to see reality. Any/all thoughts on poverty are welcome in the comments; support Blog Action Day by voicing them.
