This book seeks to affirm that the poor, marginalized, and sick share a core human essence with each of us. Unfortunately, for the most part, as a nation and as individuals, we are not willing to recognize and honor that we share a fraternity with those who live in the shadows and at the periphery. The authors intent in this book is to become a voice for those who live, suffer, and die at the margins. The goal, simply stated, is to declare their humanity and nurture empathic understandings about who they are through story-telling, espousing a moral obligation for the broader society to recognize that humanity and advancing ways of responding to their needs that enhance their dignity as human beings and relieve their sufferings throughout illness.

Keywords:   solidarity, advocacy, marginalized populations, poverty, racism, justice, healing, inner-city poor, dying poor, empathy
