  • The other day I investigated about World Population Growth and learnt that on the average every day on Planet Earth 150 thousand individuals die and 360thousand are born, which makes world population grow by 210 nthousand every day, more than a million every 5 days!

    Do you feel the anxiety I feel by growing conscious bout this fact?

    BUT: three days ago my new grnddaughter was born. Home Birth. And on this photograph her 4 year old sister holds her. And what do I feel looking at this image is HOPE!

    Is that a biological reaction programmed into us?

    The number scares you nd the image of the single baby fills your heart or fills at least MY heart with hope!
