But the food that the church can provide grows smaller every year, Anna Quindlen states “the issue is measured in mouthfuls” and follows up with “ In Los Angeles 24 million pounds of food in 2002 became 15 million in 2006.” These quotes give the reader a logical reason to be empathetic towards the hungry by explaining the problem and giving statistical reasoning as to exactly how monumental the problem actually is

Jade Walker, the author of “Number Of Homeless Children In America Surges To All-Time: Report”, is a veteran journalist with twenty-five years of experience covering international/national affairs, crime, the publishing industry, new media, and obituaries. She understands poverty as a concern for both the deprived and the privileged. To illustrate, Jade Walker expresses that “the number of homeless children in the U.S. has surged in recent years to an all-time high because of the nation’s high poverty rate, the lake of affordable housing, and the impacts of pervasive domestic violence,” (Walker 1 of 5).

It came out to twenty dollars a week, or a little three-fifty a day. I worked up a budget and calculated that we could indeed squeak by if I made extra money babysitting...I brought food and made meals for Brian, Maureen, and me (131).” Jeannette take up the responsibility of taking care the household.

“A village bank is an informal self-help support group of 20-30 members, predominantly female heads-of-household. If the program is ‘on mission’ in a normal village bank about 50% of all new members entering the program will be severely poor – representing families with a daily per-capita expenditure of less than $1; the rest are moderately poor or non-poor. These women meet once a week in the home of one of their members to avail themselves of working capital loans, a safe place to save, skill training, mentoring, and motivation. Loans normally start at $50-$100 and are linked to savings such that the more a client saves the more she can borrow. The normal loan period is four months and is repaid in 16 weekly instalments,” explains John Hatch in his lecture, “A Brief Primer on FINCA", at the University of Berkeley's Haas School of Business, July 21, 2004.

SUMMARY American poet, Linda Pastan, in her poem “Marks” published in 1978 addresses the topic of women’s roles in the household and asserts that although mothers may be good at their household job, their desire to fulfill other careers is overpowering and necessary to thrive. Pastan supports her claim by using vivid imagery, such as describing the grades she gets from her life job, a repeating pattern in the sentence structure, when listing what each of her family members grades her as, and connotative diction, when describing her feelings about being targeted in such a hardening and impersonal way. The author’s overall purpose is to inform readers that women were and still are being stereotyped, so that they might think about how they treat
