Everything You Need to Know In Three Sentences

Taken from Lotus – Surviving a Dark Time blog. I added the third sentence to put in a perspective.

  1. Last Wednesday, the UN General Assembly voted 122-0 that access to clean water and sanitation is a fundamental human right.
  2. The United States abstained, along with Canada and several European and other industrialized countries.
  3. Thirty years ago The United States, Canada and the other countries would not have abstained from this vote – they would have joined the majority.
