UN-International Anti-Poverty Day
From this day forward I pledge to do everything possible that is in my means to elliminate hunger and poverty in this city (the City of Madison) in Wisconsin, the United States, and especially the continents of Africa, South and Central America, and numerous Island counties faced with rising sea level caused mostly by too much fossil fuel burning in the developed countries; in my opinion, this makes it morally imperative for all people living the American dream of “the haves”, to help out those living in this and other countries who are “the have not”, and who therefore must live their lives in poverty — before time runs out on humanity on this planet, likely to occur before the end of this century.
let’s face it, there has already been way too much suffering, by far too many, to say nothing about the billions of children who, for the most part unknowingly face an uncertain and perhaps miserable life due to the certain to but overwhelmingly negative consequences of human-caused climate change. All animals of every species on this planet are similarly in peril.
There so little time remaining, please join me in making this pledge, to begin as soon as possible following this important day in the history of life on Earth, the only known planet in the Universe that contains an environment capable of supporting life as we know it.
