At Cedar Breaks National Park, I saw a guy with this saying on his T-shirt, "The opposite of poverty isn't wealth." It's one of those things that make you go hmmm.
I discussed this with my 17-year old. You have to decide what wealth is. Is it happiness, knowledge, an abundance of friends and family.
Conversely, what is poverty. Can you live in a palace and still be poor. I'm sure there are people who are struggling in this economic depression who would beg to differ.
What do you think?
