    • Dear Armando:

      I am impressed by your post , “Can We End Extreme Poverty,” because it’s shocking knowing there were so many people living in these conditions. You also stated how even though there aren’t as many people living like this, it is still surprising how no one did anything to help these people.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “More than 7 out of 10 people in 1995 lived on less than $1.90 a day.” I think this is sad because when you think about it, this amount of money can’t feed a family even if you tried. Although these people that are in poverty tried to make it work, it seems like it would be pretty difficult.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I liked how you decided to write about what’s seriously going on in life. Also because you seemed to have a strong mindset of how poor these people were that needed help but didn’t get it.

    One sentence that really stood out to me was, “a country where it has been at war for more than 40 years, leave the…Read More
