STOP AND THINK – The world may not be falling apart because of war, but it is being consumed and covered in garbage by seven billion inhabitants. (A letter to the editors of Reader’s Digest)

War is devastating, and current affairs around the world give evidence to its ominous threat. At the same time, while millions are suffering from starvation and deplorable living conditions, another large segment is drowning in excesses, creating enormous landfills of garbage. Surely, there must be sane and peaceful solutions to such anomalies.

Whoever oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors God (Proverbs 14:31).
