Looking around us while walking through our towns, we feel that we live in a very lively, active and frenetic world. All round us there are new cars, well-dressed people, luxury shops and houses. Nothing would make us think that behind appearances and happiness there are people who live in very bad conditions. Today they are the “new poor” and they are actually men and women who even have diplomas or degrees, they are unable or thousands of reasons to find a job, or have lost it. We live in a society where if you don’t have a job, or a bank account, or you are not dressed well with fashionable clothes, you are considered bad. That’s way today’s poverty means loneliness. People don’t pay attention to such qualities of man as intelligence, personality and attraction. What counts more than anything else is money and wealth. Even though it has not been proved that having money and wealth means being happy. I’d like to live in a society where people love each other; where nobody judges you for what you are or have. I know that that world i san illusion, but it’s our duty to try. Good luck to everybody!!
