I have recently read about the 2015 Millenium goals written by the UN. The first target is to eliminate poverty by end of 2015.
As it is today it sounds like an impossible target. A dream.
But we have to have a dream to work for!
Poverty...so many pictures and films and statistics...and we don't really understand all these figures telling us that over 25.000 die daily of hunger.
Because it is difficult to understand and maybe because we don't want to understand...because we are happy with our lifes. We think that we have enough with problems anyway.
Life is not fair, but we can make it better!
I am convinced of that. But it takes that many people are aware of this. Because we can make the difference!
And poverty...it is not only films and statistics...it is people just like you and me...
We all can help in some way...
