“We-defining Me” By Sekou Andrews

Sekou Andrews offers this poetic take on money and how it is effecting us individually and equally collectively. Do you think about every penny you spend? Think for a moment about how local or global your money travels and is what we buy actually worth it?

I picked this video to contribute to the money conversation because as we attempt to be “responsible” in our lives but, doesn’t that include our money? Not just that we save but that when we spend, it gets into the hands that need it.

Personally, I think starvation and poverty are unacceptable, but do I live and spend in a way that supports my belief, not as often as I could. This video is a great reminder of what is possible, should we make an effort to spend in accordance with our beliefs.
