Why we should make today count

By Ruth Limkin

We should make today count.

We should use our resources and our freedom to help someone today… to speak for freedom… to wipe a tear… to give to those less fortunate… to share a smile.

If you’re a woman, you should do this even more so when you reflect on where you live, and when you remember that if you lived in Afghanistan, you would be living in the ‘worst country in the world to be a woman’ due to ‘out-of-control violence, poor healthcare and extreme poverty’.

A survey by Thomson Reuters Foundation tells us more about the five worst places in the world to be a woman.

“The Democratic Republic of Congo comes a close second because of the number of rapes there – more than 1000 every day. Pakistan, India and Somalia came next in the survey, which measured threats to women ranging from domestic violence and discrimination to genital mutilation and sex trafficking.”

When you read this, you’re reminded how rich we truly are.

To whom much is given, much is expected.

Let’s make today count.

And let’s live with gratefulness in all we do.
