An unbalanced world

Thinking and writing about a food crisis which is happening locally makes me gloomy. Where some have far too little food and water others have plenty (e.g. too much).

Simple questions enabling us to review the world

There are several people I really admire, but after seeing this very short clip today I decided this is one person I would like to share with you guys. Please view it and be inspired to view the world differently.
