poor has been described as an acronym for passing over opportunities repeatedly. It is not that only the poor are disadvantaged in one way or the other, but they choose to let their situations determine their realities. Their are numerous other people in the same situations or worse who have risen above that and succeeded, beating poverty and mediocrity.
       I am not being unsympathetic to the plight of the poor, but one thing is certain. Until they overcome this mindset like many other people have, they will never rise above poverty. No matter how reasonable an excuse might be, it remains an excuse.
