"Breaking the habit" by: Linkin park(2003)

This song has to do with all the struggles, basically I related to the economy struggles. Also this song reminds me that once you are born into a poor family; you don't have to be that way too. The opportunities are there you just have to stop thinking that you can't do it so "break the habit" make the change.

"Earth" song by: Michael Jackson(1995)

This song brings out a lot of emotion of global poverty. Instead of fixing the world's poverty we are making it worse by not giving a hand to the needy. This song not only covers poverty issues but it also covers other problems around the world.

"Hello" by: Adele(2015)

I chose this song because when she says " hello from the other side", I interpret it as looking at the other part of the world whom seem to be unknown. We see the poverty but sometimes we choose to ignore it.
Adele - Hello

Fact 5

One out of five kids in this country live in poverty. Children whom are hungry or lack adequate medical care, live in substandard housing and schools are doomed as adults as well. The cycle than repeats itself again. https://www.dosomething.org/us/facts/11-facts-about-global-poverty

"Eye of the tiger" by: Survivor(1982)

This song has to do with toughness, be tough and stand up to your feet because it's not over yet. Don't the environment pull you down with it, their might be bumps in the road but at the end it's all worth it.

"Heal the world" by: Michael Jackson(1991)

I have chosen this song because poverty is not only cause by the lack of money. It's also cause by wars leaving places destroyed, children crying because they are hungry. Lets "Heal The World". We want better environment for our kids, future kids but humanity has to stop killing and destroying other places stop all wars.
