    Shane was talking about we suffered from a disease a few years ago and we was in debt. poor countries was so much in debt the couldn’t pay for education or food or nothing the kids was starving. they was wondering where that debt came from they couldn’t even pay for healthcare. they cancelled a 100 million dollars in debt. the use the ferm jubilee for freedom and rejoice. can we heal the broken in our economy but nobody knows if it will ever be healed. they even got payday loans banned. our society says little kids die because this is how I society is set up. I think we can make sure society doesn’t change us. they are saying we don’t live in a fair world and everythings needs to be better than it is because we are all not living in the same rules. our economy is all messed up. because this world is not fair.

    Shane was expressing the important view of growing our own crops. The countries that had ebola had a lot of debt was spending on debt was spending it all on getting out of debt instead of healthcare or education. They have a lot of resources to try and fund the education of the people. The people was effected by dictators that left them in all the money debt. They use the term jubilee for freedom and rejoice. As Americans christans we can have the power that to help these countries. There group has raised over 100 million dollars in debt relief so that they could work on health care. The U.S. government in Arizona got payday loans banned. This could help a lot of the world. A man had a view to make the white house change us. everyone has conflict and that we are worried about how worldly pure instead of god purity.
