45  Putting myself in the shoes of people experiencing poverty showed me a different perspective.  The “Choose It or Lose It” activity really hit home. It was heartbreaking to think that people really go through this.  The game was powerful and raised awareness about what is going on in our community.  The group interactions and ideas that came from those interactions were powerful.  All schools, even the “rich” schools, should have this training. Families are struggling everywhere.
