Poverty Perspective -by Elder Richard J. Maynes, April 2017

1/100 people in the world have a college education; 12/100 people have more than 1 pair of shoes; ½ people have clean drinking water; these numbers are even smaller when you look back further in history. So you see, we think we are in the middle of the ladder, and focus on those ahead of us, but really, we in America today are second from the top, and we only focus on the rung above us. Many don’t worry about international travel, but about whether they have enough to get on the bus to go in to town. Yet those people find happiness despite their lack of possessions. They can wear the same shirt every day of their lives and still be happy.  -by Elder Richard J. Maynes, April 2017 at a Stake Conference in Utah which I attended
