Do you want to hear something scary? I mean reeaalllly scary? Listen or read this, the world’s population has reached seven billion. To quote Clone Wars, “I’ve got a bad feeling about this.” That story I linked to above illustrates exactly how suddenly that has happened. What it doesn’t say, is how that growth effects us, and especially our children. It makes me wonder what the world will be like for them~ resources more scarce, opportunities fewer, things more expensive, the environment further jeopardized. All the people who at one time refused to acknowledge global warming are starting to admit the obvious. It’s frightening. To quote Wonder Pets, “This is serious.” (Yes, I know, I know.) I do have hope in our children (despite all the bad t.v.)~ the next generation will face some real crises, which will probably create another ‘great’ generation. It is my dearest hope.
