Response to chapter 15
I often have concerns about our growing population. I can't even fathom how many people are born each and every day whether those pregnancies were wanted, unwanted, or forced. 6 billion people is an unimaginable number when it comes to numbers. Every body containing a soul...complexities, dimensions, affections, sensations, limitations, dreams, hopes, fears, anxieties, phobias, pimples, chins, and legs just to name a few. And even in our vast expansion regarding technology and the way we heal ourselves, stratification becomes somewhat of a crude and unchecked visitor here. It astonishes me how very little the people in this world get to see a healthcare professional. The discussion on rural and urban areas also peaked my interest. How certain areas fall into poverty when just a short amount of time ago it might have been a more visually and financially appealing area.
