We’re 26th. We’re 26th.

The United Nations recently released a report on “Child-Well Being in Rich Countries.” Of the 29 countries surveyed, the United States was ranked 26th. The report is here. It comes on the heels of a Pew Study which found that although they lived in the world’s richest economy, 24 percent of Americans had trouble putting food on the table, and noted that “this reported level of deprivation is closer to that in Indonesia or Greece rather than Britain or Canada.”

Not to put too fine a point on it, but I believe that God will judge us for this.
