Dancing with Broken Bones

This chapter describes the life issues that affect particular individuals who live with such worries as death, bodily deterioration, and isolation from the community. It illustrates the mental calmness and faith they have in God despite the demands of inner city poverty. These people hold on to relationships and memories as these provide comfort in the face of sadness and strength in the face of loss. The chapter also illustrates American poverty as the absence of money and resources more than survival from starvation and death.

Keywords:   dying poor, life issues, death, bodily deterioration, isolation, mental calmness, American poverty
