Food for Thought – 9 Reasons For Us to Count Our Blessings

From the Momentarily Off-Topic Files

This image medley found its way to me today after making the rounds through the email-sphere.   Admittedly, I couldn't verify its authenticity.  But, given a comparison of the deltas between claims in the images I'm in a position to verify (e.g., U.S., Mexico, Germany) and those I can surmise from world news and events (e.g., South Asia, Central Africa), I was comfortable to share this with you with at least an anecdotal perspective.

You'll likely find your own interpretation.  For my part:  Given the disparity between the images towards the top of the stack, as compared to the image at the bottom of the stack, I'll count my blessings today.

You?
