McCale paints a beautiful and hard to read story of a mother who loves her children, of a woman who uses all of her intellectual resources to be sure there is food on the table, and of a woman who by any measure is successful. McCale also brings to light the good she sees in others and the blinders so many of us have on in terms of the economy, education, and what is happening around us.
For myself, this book opened my eyes, I hope that others pick up Waiting for Change and do what they can to change their community, their world, and their ways - not taking "it" all for granted.
I appreciated the author's candid, often heartbreaking accounts of what you might call change. I agree with the author - "the new 99% reality."
What I feel is the important aspect of the book is the concept of "no choice." What happens when you lose your job, divorce and foreclosure? Choices are not yours anymore - survival is all you have. What would you do?
Thank you for the willingness to tell a story that people need to hear and understand.
