Imagine Having To Survive Off Of Eating Dirt Cookies

In first world countries, one is considered poor if they receive government assistance such as food stamps and subsidized housing. Even the homeless have access to soup kitchens for food and emergency room services for health care. If you are reading this, then it is safe to say that you are privileged enough to have access to a computer and internet.

I imagine that people wouldn’t be so prone to drop out of a FREE public education system if it wasn’t given so freely. Some countries dream of having access to the things that we take for granted.

Take a look at some people in Haiti that have to survive by eating “cookies” made of dirt. In addition to dirt, the mixture is made with a touch of vegetable shortening , salt and if they are lucky, a pinch of sugar.
