My New Years resolution was to read more, I’ve always been a reader and I love that feeling when you can’t put you’re book away. When you get irritated at people for interrupting and you bring you’re book everywhere. So I’ve decided to read one (new) book every week.
This week I’ve read “Eat Pray Love” I’d only seen the movie but my mom loved the book so I decided to give it a try, and I LOVED it!
But my all time favorite books are “Pride and Prejudice” by Jane Austen and “Hunting and Gathering” by Anna Gevalda
“This is the right time to ask yourself: “What should I be doing to help?”
For the first time in history, it is now within our reach to eradicate world poverty and the suffering it brings. Yet around the world, a billion people struggle to live each day on less than many of us pay for bottled water. And though the number of deaths attributable to poverty worldwide has fallen dramatically in the past half-century, nearly ten million children still die unnecessarily each year. The people of the developed world face a profound choice: If we are not to turn our backs on a fifth of the world’s population, we must become part of the solution.
In The Life You Can Save, philosopher Peter Singer, named one of “The 100 Most Influential People in the World” by Time magazine, uses ethical arguments, provocative thought experiments, illuminating examples, and case studies of charitable giving to show that our current response to world poverty is not only insufficient but ethically indefensible.”
