LIVES WORTHY OF MEMOIR?—PLENTY! BILLIONS!
YET NOT MANY OF THESE ‘MAKE IT’ INTO PRINT
By Ron Kenner
— We all have a life. —
In one important sense, unfortunately, we don’t all have a life. Not really! And I'm
not merely talking about many of our lives in the developed world such as those (in
Bush administration times) currently being diminished educationally, morally,
nutritionally or in health or happiness; nor, for that matter, should we overlook
future lives being sold out economically, culturally, environmentally and more.
For billions more people in the developing world, lives are either barely on a
subsistence level—not much of a life—or are all too frequently cut short, often
needlessly, as in Darfur.
Admittedly in the U.S. many of us have considerably more of a life than others;
more livable, say, and extending literally decades longer than tens of millions or
hundreds of millions (billions?) who die needlessly early on; often because they
don't even have relatively inexpensive clean drinking water or sometimes even
because of the lack of relative pennies for inoculations. Not much life there.
