Closer to the Ground

A PowerPoint presentation was sent to me the other day and it rang all the right chimes in my despondent old body. It calls one's attention to the fact that the problems that we, in the developed world, wail over are nothing, compared to the horrors of daily life for a large percentage of the population of the planet.

Like many people, I could laugh and give thanks to "god" that I was "blessed." Or, I could look at myself and my culture in shame and wish we all could live just a little closer to the ground.
