Quick write- the dark side of our world

Our world is broken. Our world is flawed. Today we live on a planet that is backwards and inside out, that has a deal of darkness trying to disguise the glimpse of hope. We live in a world where 27 million people are forced to be slaves. 27 million women, children, and families are forced to put their lives on hold to sell themselves into slavery in order to survive. We live in a world where 780 million people don't have access to clean drinking water. Everyday those 780 million people walk hours to obtain dirty, polluted water which they consume and are now held captive to disease and illness. 3.5 million of those people will not live to see 2015. We live in a world where every 60 seconds a child dies due to a preventable disease. Every minute a child is lost because of the dark world we live in. Every 60 seconds another loss could have been prevented. We live in a world where over 120 million children are denied a right to education. 120 million children are not fortunate enough to learn to read, and write simply because of where they were born. We live in a broken, dark world. Our earth is not just what is in our horizon. Look beyond your day to day life, look beyond what is visible to you. We live in a broken, dark world, what are you going to do about it?
