Два мира - два Шапиро

У кого-то суп жидкий, а кого-то жемчуг мелкий.
Америка land of opportunities, говорите? Тогда скажите мне: вот эти люди все лгут? Лентяи и вэлферщики?

My salary was cut in 1/2 a year ago.
My husband is under-employed and has been laid off twice in the last two years.
My stepson just went to jail for 10 years. We he couldn’t find a job, he sold drugs to feed his kids and keep a roof over their heads.
My 19 yr old still lives at home. We can’t afford college, and make what someones deems to be “too much” for any assistance. He busts his ass working construction in the Florida son and considers himself lucky.
My father in law lives with us too, who can afford Senior Care? He sits in a chair all day, alone, while we work.
Life is a stressful struggle daily. We want opportunity, not handouts. We need jobs.

I am NOT lazy. I did NOT make bad choices. My home was HUMBLE and well below my means. My credit was impeccable. I waited until my mid 30’s to even THINK about having children. I got a college education. I HAD a savings account. I was solid “upper-middle-class”…I’m worried, I’m scared, I’m angry as hell that my children’s future is so bleak. This is NOT “right”, this is unacceptable in a country such as the US.

I am 38 years old
I bought a home
Lost my job
and now I work 3 jobs
in order to make what I did 10 years ago
and I am a “Lucky One”

I am part-time faculty. Come spring semester, my department will replace me with graduate students. I am looking for more courses and making contacts, but I can’t sleep for worrying about how I will provide for my son, who has cerebral palsy and needs his single mom to do everything she can to make sure that he will not want.
I am strong, but I have limits.

А особенно- вот это:
