A great storyline featured on ABC'S 20/20 with Diane Sawyer tells of the sad stories of America. I applaud 20/20 and Diane Saywer for shedding the oh so needed light on the stories of poverty and those who strive to over the adversities of having done nothing more than be born in an environment that they had no control over being in. For those of courage who rise above these desperate circumstances and find their way to a better life my heart goes out to you. There is no greater humanity than that of your own ability to overcome the worst and be an example of decency and strength to others. One of the courageous families featured were also nominated for the hit ABC show Extreme Makeover. After a trip to Spain via The Extreme Makeover team, the family returned to their brand new four bedrooms home. A great family’s life is transformed forever. So many other families wait for their opportunity to make a better way for themselves. Make a difference where ever you can. America's poverty stricken neighborhoods should not be ignored, but embraced and given hope for the future.
