Some of us on this Earth Day are living an abundant life, but that is not so everywhere. According to Ode Magazine (March 2005, p. 56):
Of the 4.4 billion people living in developing countries, nearly three-fifths lack access to sewers, a third lack clean water, a quarter lack housing, and a fifth lack healthcare of any kind. Every day 800 million people go hungry. A baby born today in Botswana has a life expectancy of 39.
