The world is a cold and judgmental place. It seems like these days, the love of man has gone cold. Many people walk through life with walls. There is a lot of standoffish attitudes running around in the world. Therefore, some people are going to feel left out. One of the people who experience the worst of this coldness are the struggling. They are judged and stereotyped more harshly because they have less than others. While some people can do everything they can to appear cleaner and more stylish, even that can backfire. For one thing, the poor are more vulnerable to various crimes.
In order for the struggling to get a leg up, it is important for them to have advocates. Fortunately, Doug Levitt has decided to use his singing and songwriting talents to be their advocate. One of the most important things he has done to make it happen is get out of his comfort zone and actually talk to people. One thing he has realized is that the poor and the struggling can be very friendly. One reason is that they have a lot less. Therefore, they don’t have as much of a wall to put up with..
Doug Levitt has gained an understanding of what it is like to be ignored and forgotten by society at large. To make things worse, society does everything it can to keep the poor in their place with very little opportunity to actually rise above their struggles. With Doug’s book and music, people will be shown the humanity of the poor. They will also see that there is a huge diversity to how they ended up in their circumstances. One thing that is common in a lot of stories is that they are doing everything they can to move up in life.
