Reader comment on Lynne Twist's passage ...

This passage seems directed most aptly to those who have some stability. As a young college grad, who has been living at or under the poverty line for two years, my literal lack of money impacts my life daily. I still make choices to give more than I think I can whether with capital, time, or love. None of us can afford to be mentally impoverised, and really that is a frightening mental state. Nevertheless, when I look around at my fellow young college graduates who are faring poorly, I think there really is an economic problem here that merits observation. Some of us are struggling more, and not just because of our desire to consume, or our "money-centric" attitudes. Ms. Twist's comments are interesting, if not comprehensive, but seem aimed at those who are doing okay financially.
