Money Rules

The lesson in the story is that the Stnaford student learned so much and grew up from the experience that he wants his own grandchildren to be almost awakened by the act of serving the community the way he was. Even though he is working to rid the world of homelessness he noticed the great opportunity he had and he wanted to share it. I think it would take people to care about others as much as they care about themselves. Everyday we hear on the news of people dying or losing their homes but can anyone seriously say they have lost a minute of sleep over it. This is the way our society is built you can step on anyone to get to the top and not feel one ounce of guilt over it. Also everyone is out for money, money rules everything in America. If your wealthy and well known you can buy whatever you want. Whenever people hear that someone wealthy breaking the law it's swept under the rug, they are forgiven and most of the time never serve any type of jail sentence. I think that once America cares about more than just money and themselves this country will be able to take a step in the right direction. I do not think that homelessness will be totally eliminated by the time of my grandchildren, but I do think that with the right people it can certainly be minimized.

I certainly agree with you Tony. I think its a sad day when we worry more about what is happening in Brittany Spears life, than in ours.

I also agree, money is the driving force in our society. How to make it and how to spend is our main concern forgetting that thier are issues that need to be addressed. Good job!

Some say that money is the root of all evil. However, I believe that it is the value placed on money that is the root of all evil. Then again, "money makes the world go round."-anonymous
