    polls badly.
    I will say that I don't think government assistance fuels my ambitions. I think more honest opportunities to experience/ try on the working world with real supports, would be a lot of help for PWD. That said, the idea that hunger and homelessness or something is a *motivator" because my safety-net life has become...lavish, or whatever is both mean and stupid. I would be ashamed to say it out loud, much less believe it is a Bold Vision of the way forward or something. Probably those DREAM kids have grown up fast and gotten mature because they can't lean on their parents too, but I wouldn't recommend for a misbehaving teen.
