There's a hole in the bucket

There is an old song that goes: There's a hole in the bucket dear Liza dear Liza - Well, then FIX IT dear Henry, dear Henry--then FIX IT.

It is so easy to complain about anything...obviously, it takes more effort to fix things...maybe that's why more people complain than get things done... still, knowing what is wrong is valuable...the first step is to state the problem clearly, which will often even suggest a solution. Personally I believe there is a solution to EVERY problem if only you can find it-it might just come to you (mentally or through someone else) or through simple research or by some creative action (think MacGyver--80's t.v. show).

I am hereby announcing:

The World's Worst Problems Challenge

To paraphrase Martin Luther King ("A justice delayed is a justice denied") - A problem not solved in a timely manner, just gets worse... a good friend once told me "It's better to do something when you first think of it." This belief has saved her hours of grief and lots of money.
I have my own saying: CREATIVITY CONQUERS COST!

Here is an abbreviated list of The World's Worst Problems -please suggest what can be done to "fix" any one of these--then we can have some really great "Better World" news to share. Add to the list as you see fit.

1. War
2. Hunger
3. Slave trade (children stolen or sold into slavery)
4. Epidemic disease
5. Oil depletion /energy needs
6. Intolerance of other's religions
