The opposite of poverty is not wealth. … In too many places, the opposite of poverty is justice.–Bryan Stevenson
Heart culpability
compels dazzling difficult
I believe we’re
better than
rich and poor.
Not just wealth
compels us
to bright outcomes,
Be attentive.

Borrowed from TED talk by Bryan Stevenson
“We have a system of justice in [the US] that treats you much better if you’re rich and guilty than if you’re poor and innocent. Wealth, not culpability, shapes outcomes. It’s that mind-heart connection that I believe compels us to not just be attentive to all the bright and dazzling things but also the dark and difficult things.”
