7. As someone who grew up poor..

And went hungry during lunch and had to stay in the classroom while the other kids went on field trips we couldn’t afford to go on since most of them cost money, this both breaks my heart and makes me angry. What kind of person denies food to children? We live in the wealthiest country in the world. Shameful!
