My home town is rank 4th in Louisiana top 10 for poverty. I know that it hard to face poverty and see others who are struggling with poverty. My town is very small and many people do whatever to try and get back up on there feet. So many kids are roaming around looking for trouble and parents don't really care because they are at home just sitting around all day. It's just sad to drive around and look at out town suffer. So Mrs. or Mr. president may you please adress the poverty issue in our country.
