How the Other Half Live- Faith in Humanity Restored

I enjoy watching videos on YouTube, Netflix, etc., but I’m especially fond of ones that let us see into the lives of other people.  When I watched this video on YouTube entitled “How the Other Half Live” by David Abingdon, it really struck a chord in me.  I was expecting to see a comparison of wealthy and poor people, and I did, but it was much more than that.  The Abingdons actually sponsored this mother and daughter!

The wealthy family had grown up more poor and were just the sweetest people.  The poor single mother and little girl were living in dire circumstances, and just couldn’t seem to find a way out of them.  This wasn’t because she didn’t want to work, she actually had a law degree, but was unable to land an apprenticeship.  But everything changed when these two families got together!  I was in tears several times.  I don’t want to ruin it all for you, so watch this beautiful story!


I am surprised to see the looks on the kids faces sometimes, when they realized how a lot of other children had to live.  The Abingdon family are all such kind, wonderful people, and I’m sure they will carry this experience with them for the rest of their lives.  Hopefully, more people will take a lesson from this, and start giving people in bad circumstances a helping hand.  I would love to see how things are going a few years down the road!  How about you?
