Three hundred and sixty-one

I know I’ve been putting a lot of photos of street art up, but I need to add one more.  It’s not art as much as it is a political statement, written across the doors of an abandoned building a few blocks away from my house.

It reminds me of all the things that could be done to better the living conditions of those in poverty in Canada.  Although I’m a believer in investing in prevention as opposed to reaction (also something I talked about quite a bit concerning health and diet in previous months), there are steps that need to be taken in order to help get people on their feet when prevention (affordable, safe  housing; child care;  improved working conditions and pay for low-wage jobs; more access to education) didn’t work.  Food banks are one of these.
