    That has not been my experience.  I wish it were.  For years, I worked for nonprofits because I wanted to do things that mattered to me.  But I "eeked" along usually without any health insurance and hoping that nothing major would happen as I lived so close to the edge.  And my situation was nothing compared to many people's plight in the world.  I think it is a lovely sentiment; I just wonder if committing to making a difference with what we have works when one really doesn't have enough for sustainability.
