Something to Think About...

“Starving children in Africa are not poor because their consciousness is unaligned with love; they are poor because ours is. A billion people on earth live in “deep poverty”—that is, on less than one dollar and twenty-five cents a day. A billion more live on less than two dollars a day. Yet, this is not an “exception” to the rule that love casts out fear. Quite the opposite, it is a collective lovelessness on the part of the advanced nations of the world that allows us to accept the reality of deep poverty, thus deflecting a miraculous solution that when we collectively make love our bottom line—making humanitarian values rather than short-term economics the organizing principles of human civilization—then the situation will indeed miraculously change.” –Marianne Williamson, The Law of Divine Compensation

What are our responsibilities to the children of the world?
