Now at Commonweal: my article on poverty in Appalachia

Though I worked for two years in a role of service to people living in poverty in Mingo County, West Virginia, I can still say, without hesitation or any exaggeration, that the people of that region gave me and my family far more than I ever gave to them.

Before my family and I left West Virginia a couple of years ago, one of that region’s strongest forces for good, Sr. Janet Peterworth, OSU, asked me to remember to be a voice, in my new home, for the people of Appalachia.

For both of the above reasons, the new article of mine that Commonweal has posted this week is little more than a partial payment on a debt. “A Judgment upon Us All” is posted here.
