I was travelling yesterday, and I overheard a person discussing something. He was telling a bunch of people, all wearing armour with arrogant, vain expressions on their faces about how the poor must be wiped beneath the carpet as such. Why do people not see, the poor must be helped to improve their lot, not hidden like they are some unseemly, ugly, and drab building....

The unfortunate are no less deserving of compassion than are others ... if not even being moreso. Sweeping them under the proverbial carpet is not an answer ... though throwing money at the problem isn't always the answer, either. As the old saying goes ... give a man a fish, he eats for a day ... teach him to fish and he eats evermore.

Is that how it goes? mmm... I need ta stop using my expression...

Give a man a fire and he's warm for a day, light a man on fire and he's warm for life!

hehe Just kidding! Anyways...yeah, as being one of the poor to be swept under the rug, I'm not surprised that you've heard that. Many people are very caring and generous, while others are just meanies. We poor don't have it too bad, though, so don't pitty us. There's two ways ta bein' rich in life: having lots of money, or having few needs. I've got the latter, and lots of good friends to help me out if I get in a bind. I also have a cozy crate ta sleep in down by the docks. Don't forget, we're just people, too.

P.S. One of the ways I've found to help those less fortunate than me is to hire them as "guards". Basically, you pay them some gp to walk with you through certain high-crime areas and help you do some healings and general help for those that look like they need it. It benifit's them doubly: they get to earn some gp while also getting a free lesson on being nice and caring for others. icon_smile.gif
