Poor kids have greater chances of asthma, Substandard housing being a contributing factor.  What would you change/add if money was no object?  What are your thoughts and experiences?

Don't be silly, Jambles. I have never "tried" to read your Facebook posts. But we do have mutual friends, and until you hid me, I would occasionally see your posts on their walls. That's how Facebook works. You might have reason to be afraid, but not of me.

I'm genuinely curious why you've chosen social work? This board has been hopping for a few weeks and I haven't seen any kind of indication from your posts that you believe in social justice. You come across as anti-feminist, anti-poor people, and to be completely honest: elitist. Granted, I'm only at the tail end of the sophomore level of a sociology degree, so my experience is limited to just my classmates in the three sociology classes I've taken beyond intro, but I don't remember anyone sticking out as not being passionate about social justice, especially the students who have introduced themselves as heading toward a social work major transfer.

I understand that sociology and social work are two separate disciplines (and even in separate departments in most colleges and universities) and to be doubly fair, I haven't taken any specific social work courses, though you explained that you're taking them, it makes me curious how wide those differences really are. 

How far into your studies are you?

I have been on this board for years and yes, it's nice to stay in touch with some on facebook. Wow, I didn't know you were trying to read my posts there, Should I be afraid?

No Peachy, not confusing you with someone else but that is ok if you feel this is the way a devout christian should act. Maybe that will be a good question for bible class :)

How do you know how a devout Christian should act?

I think you have stated many times, Peachy how religious you are. It amazes me for someone who tries to be more like Jesus to act this way toward total strangers.

Honestly I hear it more from you as you judge.  Why?
