Noraini's insight:

I am truly amazed by how motivated and kind/helpful they are as they want poverty to stop by using media social. I believe not alot of people would do such thing to raise awareness of poverty as we are living in the 21st Century and they are all busy but then again, we have to be aware of what is happening around us.

Noraini's insight:

We all know that there are people who are not as fortunate and privileged as us but I did not really think that poverty could affect the world so much. I am really sorry for those who are facing this  but then again, people like us can't do much unless we have the power and resources to help them. Instead, we, the privileged ones should feel more blessed and fortunate for having such a luxury life and should not complain that much. Yet, I'm still confused, why don't their own parents have some sympathy towards them?

Noraini's insight:

I didn't know that poverty can affect that much in a person as in the article, it suggests that it can mentally, physically and emotionally affect one's thinking as one might be thinking about many things because of poverty. Example, how to overcome poverty etc. Plus, i didn't know that poverty can affect one's health. but, i wonder why and how it can actually affect one's health?

I can see that, of more than 40 million Americans in poverty, everyday life is a struggle — buying food, going to school, getting a job. And for a great many of them, what most people think of as simple tasks are also difficult. I feel bad for them, as they are not fortunate like us. I wonder if Government were to do something about their economic, since there is such cases of people stress to death, due to poverty. I didn't expect that psychological effect could affect people with poverty. I wonder how this effect could affect people?
