    beautifully put! I see a lot of this type of thinking, also, in the public health and women’s health arenas. “Well, no one I know has had an unwanted pregnancy/HIV/gonorrhea/cervical cancer so why should I be concerned about abortion/AIDS/STD treatment/the HPV vaccine?” It’s amazing how people only see what is under their nose, and can’t see that in this big, wide world of ours, there are many many things that we can’t even imagine…

    You want to be positive and careing about the world,and to see all that is wrong with it is depressing,especially when religion causes wars,when there are power struggles going on in countries between stong men who want to rule and endup fighting each other and the people that suffer the most is always the inocent that did not ask to be caught in the middle.
    It is all so saddening that there is so much apthy towards the suffering of others.
