how are we doing?

Well, six billion people in this world, three billion [one half] make under $2.00 a day income.
50,000 people die every day of preventable disease.
50% of the world population can't read or write.
The Amazon rain forests (Rainforest ?) are dying so fast that there is no hope of them being replenished.
Americans spend eight billion dollars a year on pornography.
A test: in one word, describe the world we live in.
____________ (your answer?)
The top three answers--sounds like The Family Feud Game here--are 1) confused; 2) lost; 3) sick.
I did go to church this morning, and when I got fully awake the preacher was saying all those things. I will try to take them to heart.
I would have written this earlier but Karen and Billy met us for brunch after church at Perry's (link) in the Woodlands. Then we all went to a movie, RV (link). It is funny, stupid funny. Karen and I laughed a lot, the others, well? [some laughter was heard from them also]
Psalm 8 in full:
1 O LORD, our Lord, How excellent is Your name in all the earth, Who have set Your glory above the heavens!
2 Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have ordained strength, Because of Your enemies, That You may silence the enemy and the avenger.
3 When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained,
4 What is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him?
5 For You have made him a little lower than the angels, And You have crowned him with glory and honor.
6 You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet,
7 All sheep and oxen; Even the beasts of the field,
8 The birds of the air, And the fish of the sea That pass through the paths of the seas.
9 O LORD, our Lord, How excellent is Your name in all the earth!
Looks like Dad is saying no more hiding behind "anonymous" when you post. You have to own up to what you think/post.
