Death and fortune

On my way home today, i listened to the radio as usual and heard a sad fact. Twenty school buses full of under fives die each day because they don’t have access to clean sanitation. Toilets etc.
Then when home i opened a link on twitter originally from some teenagers website or magazine that listed the top ten football players net worth here in the UK. It stated that number ten was worth £27 million up to £47 million as the top earner.
My eldest daughter is a teenager, today in fact.
It saddened me that teenagers would care more about premier league footballers wages, than the generations that are lost each year. Dieing from the lack of a toilet. I’m sure my lovely daughter doesn’t care, and would be more worried about that large school size group of under fives who die daily.
I hope so anyway.
