Many times people reminisce about the “good old days” when things were supposedly better than they are now. The truth is that things have never been better than they are now. There are less wars, people are living longer, health care for most people is better than ever, living standards have risen, incomes have risen and housing sizes have increased.
Yes, some things have gotten worse – like the environment.
Yes, there are still many problems to overcome… especially in less-developed countries where many millions of children go to bed hungry and die early of preventable illnesses.
We are clearly living in a world of “haves and have nots” and for those of us who care enough to do something about it… there is plenty to do!
