5 Poverty photographs

I do not want this blog to end up as a insults to human intellect by moaning non stop.

After sailing across the Atlantic several times and completing a 85,000 overland two-year exploration of Africa with my wife and seven-year old daughter I can tell you that moaning gets you no where in this world.

We will all be lucky if before we depart to understand that giving not receiving is the secret to happiness. That beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It must please the senses and the mind. That compassion without action comes cheap. That Apollo 8 photo of the  EARTH RISING puts every think in perspective.

We are all on earth a micro speck in the vastness of the Universe. It belongs to us all. However sometimes people carry it more on the inside than on the outside.

Its beauty is beyond words, and its hard to accept as its current caretakers we are allowing it to be exploited for short-term gains. We can’t let it happen.

Those that are trying Donors Choose Org, Heifer International, Save the Childers, World Vision not forgetting a few individuals such as Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates.

Just think what could be achieved if every Stock Exchange applied a commission on all transactions. What a balanced world we would have. A world we could all be proud of RISING TO DAY AND TO MORROW.

Join me in the struggle. With the combined power of our Mobil phones we can make a stance.
