Quote of the Day – September 27, 2012:
The US Census Bureau released data last week regarding poverty and income by community. Findings showed that Milwaukee, Wisconsin was among the most impoverished cities in the US. Today’s quote comes from an article in the Marquette Tribune, by Emily Fisher:
The Rev. Thomas Hughson, associate professor emeritus of theology, has suggestions for students hoping to make a difference in Milwaukee’s poverty rate.
“Students who want to do something,to take action about lowering the poverty rate in Milwaukee will need to recall the axiom, ‘By myself I can’t do much, but organized we can do a lot.’ Marquette students could form an association with a common interest in doing something about the poverty rate,” Hughson said.
