Nancy Paul never gave up. She fought until the end every time. This was true when she fought poverty, or when she fought battles in court. She was a lawyer, and she fought for the poor in her city. Her friends told her to stop because it was a losing battle. â€œPoor people fight each other, they arenâ€™t interested fighting poverty. Why are you?â€ But Nancy felt she must fight against this mentality, so she never gave up.
