Worst Case Scenario

Todays Daily Prompt:

Of all the awful possibilities, what’s the worst possible thing that could happen to you today?

Last month I worked for UNICEF for about a week, during my short time with them I took on board some truly shocking but in some ways also empowering facts. Facts that I think we’ve all heard at some time or another, but tend not to penetrate or take much lasting effect, but when working to turn them around they become much more real, part of your day to day life, this tumblr post illustrates them nicely.

And todays Daily Post prompt lead me to talk about this because it made me think as a member of the relatively small number of privileged people in this world, what IS the worst that could happen to me today? It’s incomparable to the majority of people in this world that are struggling to even stay alive.

    I took part in a challenge once (it was only a one page site – and not a joke) entering how much I earn per year to determine where in the world I ranked wealth-wise in a percentage: I was horrified, shocked, stunned and gob-smacked. It turned out that I was in the top 11% of the wealthiest people in the world???? I couldn’t believe it.

    Your infographic is another demonstration of just how fortunate we are. I said it to myself just the other day, can’t remember what it was related to, that I am glad I was born in England, otherwise ‘X’ wouldn’t be available. Many of us do realize how lucky we are, but there too are so many who don’t.

    Thanks for bringing me back down to earth today.

    Caroline 🙂

    Lovely post…. I guess you are right, although there’s still the scenario of an untimely death though.
