Scrooge Ignorance & Want In the famous story A Christmas Carol, the Ghost said to Scrooge These are your children Ignorance and Want. as he opened his robe to reveal two small unfortunate poverty stricken children. By this, the ghost meant that because of the cruelty of the world and irresponsibility, these innocent children must suffer. These children suffered because of careless people like Scrooge. The ghost meant unfortunate children like these are the responsibility of everyone.
Their names were ignorance and want because they were a result of ignorant people and people who only wanted for themselves. In today’s world many children also live in poverty. However there are many more organizations to help them and their families and to prevent them having to live on the streets. Such an example of an organization would be welfare. Welfare helps people by giving supplying food stamps and money to the less fortunate. Another caring organization would be the Salvation Army who gives food and clothing to people who need it. It is our responsibility to care for the needy by sponsoring a child for Christmas and donating money and clothing to the Salvation Army. Even though there are many Scrooges in our world we can still take on the responsibility of caring for those who need it.
We may not need help now but the future is never certain. If you are kind to others, they will remember and be kind to you when you really need it. Social Issues Essays.
