Daily Thoughts from Jean Vanier - 4/6/09

// Jean Vanier English



Why is There this Gap?

How is it that after all these years of immense technology there are still millions of people who have no fresh water? How is it that they are without food, or without adequate medical help for all those who have AIDS, particularly in Africa? We never seem to be able to do anything about this poverty except send a little bit of money. Poverty is continually there —that vast wall. [A French] economist says, "I don’t think we can eradicate this terrible poverty because of our fear of death."

Jean Vanier, "Living Gently in a Violent World," p. 70
