|I am reminded of a line from the movie "The Stand," when Gary Senise' character, "Stewart" said to Mother Abigail, "I don't believe in God." To which she replied, "But God believes in you."
People may abandon God, but he will never abandon us.

|poverty instills fear in the basic human needs - shelter, food, survival - they have forgotten that spiritual work can heal those fears by releasing it all and trusting god...Are today's churches in need of their own spiritual upliftment to inspire the abandoned?|

|Very true I am sad to say. You can see the disillusionment in their eyes, even when they tilt their heads downward. Very poignant piece....

|Larry, so much truth in your poem, I do believe the root of many of the problems in our world start by poor parenting...so many people are caught up in their own bad habits and they neglect their children & the children end up raising themselves and this is passed down through generations of that child and this brings about the many slums, robberies, dishonesty, etc. It's not easy for a child to have no basis in life and without a basis things erode in their lives and it is passed down.|

|Larry, you've touched on one of my "big hurts in america" issues and there are no easy answers to it's solution...but it is a blight on the goodness of our country.
Very effective writing.

|We have truly abandoned far too many things in this once great nation of ours, and many of these things are what once made our nation so great. I often wonder how we've strayed so far from the right path, and I sadly wonder if we'll ever find it again.|
