For your consideration:

1.7 million people in the US have lost a limb.

1.3 million Americans are legally blind.

There are 2.9 million disabled vets in the U.S.

There are over one billion undernourished people in the world.

Almost two million died of hunger this year.

Twelve thousand people died of hunger today.

One and a half million people are homeless in Chile after their Feb 27th earthquake.

Hundreds of thousands in Haiti are living under a blue tarp on a dirt/mud floor after their January 12 earthquake.

4500 children will die today because of lack of access to clean water.

My cat drinks cleaner water than half the world's population.

I woke up in a warm bed, in a warm house, with all my body parts more or less working the way they should. The family members in this house love me to pieces. We all have education in varying amounts, plenty of clean clothes & shoes to wear. We have food and drinks in the fridge and in the cabinets.

We have clean water that arrives at the turn of a spigot. Today it was cold. Something's wrong with the water heater & we had no hot water.

All things considered, I have *nothing* to complain about.

What will you keep in perspective today?
