    Go to any city in the United States and you will find people living in dump-like environments. These are real people, not an abstract, intellectual category. They are people with hopes and fears. And, quite frankly, many of them are not interested in discussions about economic determinism. They are interested in having a home, obtaining a job that does not pay starvation wages, getting their children educated, affording health care, enjoying some of the social goodies. Helping a poor family will not change societal patterns of inequality, but it will change the pattern of that family's life.

Young people are dropping out of school because of drugs, so we need to do more to keep them in education, and to get educated about drugs, because it's so easy to get into, but it's so hard to get out of. We have to show our children that there's more to life than this.
