“Poor people embarrass and upset us. They arouse conflicting feelings of pity, anger, inner discomfort and perhaps a kind of more or less recognised guilt. They reveal our refusal to stand by one another. It is no surprising that the rich defend themselves and try to hide poor people behind the walls of slum areas.”

Jean Vanier – sign up to his beautiful daily message of compassion.
