What if we did what we believed was right?

What if we acted on the notion that the people who had the least amount of money and the least amount of influence were now going to be treated the very best? Because these individuals never seem to get the best in life, not once since the day they were born.
What if every time we thought about building a new residential complex to improve the revenue stream or aesthetics of a neighborhood or city, we did so without ever displacing people in poverty? What if, instead, we looked at the plans for a beautiful residential building and built it FOR those in poverty? Because if we did that, we would be treating people who have had the worst of it as if they deserve the best of it.
