Indiana: Jyl Madlem #40dollars

What's $40 mean to you?
$40, wow. It does't really seem like that much money. But when it used to cost $25 to fill up with gas at the local filling station and now costs nearly $70, whew! I already go all week long without lunches so that I can pay for gas just to get to work. $40/per pay could equate to over $800/year, which could be used to buy school clothes or pay medical/pharmaceutical expenses for my two daughters. The bottom line (pardon the pun) is that $40 is $40, no matter how you choose to spend it.
