Perspective

I'm reminded of how lucky I am to live in the richest nation during the most prosperous time in human history.

Go here and try the following salaries:

$200,000
$100,000
$50,000
$5,000 - starting to get the picture?
$500

Notice anything interesting?

Three billion people live on less than $2 per day while 1.3 billion get by on less than $1 per day. Seventy percent of those living on less than $1 per day are women
