Almost a billion people go to bed hungry every night. Clean energy and ocean conservation are important, extremely important for sure, but every now and again one sad statistic puts things in perspective.
As of 2008 (2005 statistics), the World Bank has estimated that there were 1,345 million poor people in developing countries who live on $1.25 a day or less.
How can we hope to make major positive change when so many people do not even know if their next meal is coming or not? We have to try, anyway, on all fronts.
As The Grateful Dead sang, "Reach out your hand if your cup be empty, if your cup is full may it be again."
