Poor in United States


Myself By T.V. Antony Raj

Elkridge, Maryland, USA.

January 30, 2012

Yesterday it was sunny and cloudless; and my son suggested that we go shopping at IKEA at College Park and WALMART.

From your and my point of view, the way it looks, everyone in US seems to be having enough resources. On our way this image in my mind of an affluent US was shattered.

The temperature outside the car was 45 degrees Fahrenheit (7 degrees Celsius) and freezing.


Do you see the woman in the center of the photo standing in the middle of the road holding a placard?



Since we were in the third lane.I could not read what was written. So, I zoomed in with my camera, and was shocked. I read:

“Family in Need
Due Lay off
Any help Appreciated
Thank ypu
God Bless.”

– Elkridge, Maryland.

While in India, I thought America was a land flowing with milk and honey. But now I see, that this country is no different from any country in Asia.

Yes. United States of America too has its quota of poor people.
