Some of the good news for 2014

Some of the good news for 2014 brings us 26 charts and maps that show the world is getting much, much better.

In the list:

  1. Extreme poverty has fallen
  2. Hunger is falling.
  3. Child labor is on the decline.
  4. People in developed countries have more leisure time.
  5. The share of income spent on food has plummeted.
  6. Life expectancy is increasing.

Bad news attracts our attention, good news not so much. Bad news stimulates our outrage, if not our action. How do you manage to balance you response to news both good and bad?

I may have missed it, but I’m surprised that The Lead hasn’t at least alerted the readership that the +Justin had been hospitalized for pneumonia. Was it somewhere I just failed to notice?

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
