Rich Philanthropist Profoundly Affected By A Poor Mother

  • Published on Mar 14, 2019
  • She is a successful CEO and the head of a philanthropic foundation. I had a business several years ago that trained local videographers around the USA to do my kind of interviewing. We offered the service to family members interested in having one of my videographer interviewers conduct a one hour interview with a family member as a legacy video. This woman was one of the videos we made. Unfortunately, the business didn't succeed and there were several reasons why. This was recorded in 2008. #presidentalcandidate #womanpresident

    My aunt's husband died in a car accident in the late 50's and she raised six kids in a four room house without a bathroom, only an outhouse.

    Why didn't Miss Moody have medical care? That is the real problem!

      +Isa Okay, but maybe you weren't listening to the interview. By the time she found out about Miss Moody's cancer, it was too late to help her. You act as though the rich lady ought to have done something different. And the idea that having Universal Healthcare would lower rates of cancer is not supported by the facts.

      +Brian Smith That is idiotic. Early medical intervention can prevent and/or stop cancer and other types of illness. Tell the diabetic about your philosophy. Tell the asthmatic. By the way, I had a melanoma, and I had it removed, and I've been cancer free for 30 years. Had it not been caught in time, I would have been dead long ago. Please don't be ridiculous.

      +Isa This rich woman couldn't have stopped cancer. Universal Healthcare can't stop cancer. I dare say this rich lady has done more to help the poor than anyone who has commented here.

      +Wellstone True. And rich people do not believe in Universal health care. This rich woman bought Miss Moody dresses, but she apparently didn't think to offer help with medical expenses. The rich lady lives, and the poor die. Some lives are more valuable than others, it seems.

    This is such an unusual story. The circumstances through which this speaker comes to know Ms. Moody are pretty surreal, probably even by the standards of her day. The thing that really strikes me is how transactional the initial interactions were; that she essentially reached out to this woman hoping to use her wealth in order to build a connection and mine her for her maternal expertise in the wake of becoming a mother for the first time. It's a pretty bizarre thing to do, even compared to the eccentric behaviour upper class elites are prone to.

    All too often we don't think of those of lesser circumstances as this dear woman has. I think my viewing this upon returning home was absolute kizmet and I'll explain why.
    I was on my way home from a late show tonight and I stopped at an all night restaurant. I saw a homeless man there in the parking lot so I asked him inside and shared a meal with him and listened to his story. Brian is 41 and from Chicago. He had just arrived in the Texas Hill Country from Seattle where he had been badly beaten by a gang in a homeless tent city. He had plans but it was clear to see he didn't have means. It was also abundantly clear after several minutes that the fellow has some issues beyond being outdoors. No matter, he had a slight smile and just a hint of optimism inspite of his situation. He still has goals because it gives him purpose. Even if he's taking the long way around the barn to get there. I asked if I could help direct him to services but he fears what happens in those places and politely turned me down. I left him with a handshake, a blessing and $20. I told him I'd be praying for him. He thanked me and waved as I left. "In so much as you've done it for the least of mine, you have done it for me."
    Take a minute and love somebody today.

      I couldn't believe it when I ran into him again 5 days later and 50+ miles from the location of our first meeting. He got to meet my wife and my younger brother this time. He said, "People have been very good to me here in Texas. I've never seen any place like this. Why is everybody so nice and polite here?" I told him, "That's because everyone here is well armed; therefore, respect and courtesy go a long way."

      people like you are extremely single minded and fail to ever understand the other side of things. Always think that they are correct and never for once doubt themselves or accept that they have been wrong for the sake of that they are genuinely mistaken. There is not a single type of personality that I hate more than yours. Destructive in any social environment they feel uncomfortable in. I can tell you are conservative and I would just like you to know that I am very conservative aswell but you have failed to see the message of this video.

      So you would make the rich sell off something they earned by producing products or services for $10,000 for free? Then you go find poor people who are deserving (which there is a lot) versus those who made bad and lazy choices that has benefited society?

      It is meant to be an exclusive, that one month feeding is for oxymorons.
