I always learn a lot from reading The Beading Gem Blog by my friend Pearl. Today her post is about the fact that today is Blog Action Day. I did not know that. The focus is Poverty. If you check out her blog you will be lead to many other blog entries on the subject. Just a way for people to bring attention the the subject of Poverty. Pearl's blog is at http://www.beadinggem.com/. She is on my blog list on the right side of my blog and you can catch her posts regularly.
I thought I could provide an additon to the theme by sharing a post I had written in July titled America? It was about "Breaking the Chains" of modern day slavery which is often a result of poverty. You can read my older post here: http://bevsjewelry.blogspot.com/2008_07_01_archive.html
