Rags to riches Fiji Times Rags to riches. Margaret Wise Friday, June 21, 2013. Cool runnings ... Pedro Virgil never forgets his humble beginning as he enjoys life + Enlarge this image. Cool runnings ...
I can see that Pedro Virgil, the renowned and successful man has been through much struggles to pave his way to success. Coming from a poor family, he faced certain difficulties living without electricity when he was young. However, he continued to work hard, and with his motivation and support from his mum. he managed to crawl up to success, despite facing countless rejections. This is a very admirable spirit that I look up onto.
I think about how fortunate I am to not face this circumstances that he faced of living without electricity in my age. I think about how much determination he must had to set his mind and achieve his goal since young, and eventually getting it despite facing countless rejections and difficulties. I feel ashamed for myself as despite having good opportunities to success, I complain about it with a aimless mind, not being thankful for what I have at all.
I wonder how much has all those successful people might have been through, and what really drives them going on to achieve their goals. I wonder what I would really be if i was to become successful. I wonder if I can have much determination as Pedro Virgil had to achieve my goal.
Eradicating poverty can involve many varied and innovative approaches according to circumstance. But a universal factor is that development of livelihoods depends on communities enjoying good health and access to education.
This is my insight using the 4Cs thinking routine. Before reading the article, I know that water is essential in our lifes and we need to cherish it. However, after reading the article, it has made me realize the great impact of not having access to proper drinking water. I didn't know that this would affect the lifes' of the community so much. With easier access to sanitized water, their lifes would change. Women would not need to go to faraway places to collect water, and have more time and energy to earn income for their family. They also would not need to worry about their children falling sick from drinking and would be able to grow vegetables for both comsumption and sales purposes. This made me realize the importance of safe drinking water and appreciate and cherish more of the easy access to free-flowing of water from the taps in households. Sometimes I can't help but wonder if the Government of all those poor people suffering are even trying to help to improve the situation.
This is my insight using the 4Cs thinking routine. After reading the article, I can see that poverty is a very serious issue, as it affects both the physical and mental health of a person. In the article, it states that when someone is living in poverty, they not only have to worry about money constantly, they also have to resort into eating cheap, processed food which lacks nutrition. This causes them to be so stress, that sometimes, it may even lead to mental illness. Since they also malnutrition, they would fall sick easily which also affects their physical health. Thus this shows the interlinked relationship between mental illness and poverty.After reading the text, I feel so fortunate to have a blissful family that supports me throughout my life and I would also start to cherish whatever i have now. However, sometimes, I wonder, why do the rich and the influential people not come together and help this poor people in need.
This is my insight using See-Think-Wonder. After reading this article, I am utterly surprised that there is so many people living in extreme poverty despite being in a developed society. However, as Asia economy is growing, there are also a growing number of philanthropists to help the people living in poverty. I think this is a very good thing as people in this society are willing to help each other with genuine care and concern. I feel that this concept and idea of caring and sharing with each other should be spread around the World which may probably even end the poverty in the World. However, I wonder why this idea is not developed around the World.
This is my insight using 4Cs thinking routine. After reading the text, I can see that the interlinked relationship between education and poverty is a complex one. This relationship can be seen resounding throughout the world. Education can be either the key to breaking out of poverty, or the key to enter into the life of poverty. With proper and higher education, one can get a permanent job and earn money on a long term basis to avoid economic and social despair of the people living in poverty. However, despite giving an opportunity to study, there are still people that dropout from school, and as a result, they couldn't find a job, which slowly led them into the life of poverty. After reading this text. I have a greater motivation to study and I may have found a inspiration in life to help those poor children who have no chance for education to help them change their lifes and fight against poverty. This has also led me to wonder why some people chose not to study despite given the chance of proper education, as it would be simply a foolish act and a major loss in their life.
Any American who still thinks there is nothing wrong with our economy and the direction we're headed need only look to this latest example for evidence that things are not at all as pleasant as they may seem.
This is my insight using See-Think-Wonder thinking routine. After reading the artivle, I am shocked by the number of Americans living in poverty despite America being a rich and prestigious country. I can see the efforts made by the American Government as they called down the police force to keep order and look after the sick and eldery lining up for the food vouchers. However, i think that this effort is still not enough as there are still millions of American suffering in silience, without food and other essentials. I feel that they should put in more effort to manage this unemployed and poverty stricken Americans, so that they can have enough money to purchase their daily meals and other essentials. I wonder what would might happen it this kind of free food vouchers event didn't exist. People may probably die from hunger or resort to violence to get their needs.
