For the last week, this blog has had a survey up called, What Should Be Our Greatest Concern?
It’s time to tally the votes from our readers.
First though, let me state that 48% of this blog’s readers come from the United States; however, that means that 52% are from a wide diversity of other countries…
I should also say that the way the Internet and Blogs work the survey will likely receive more voters and I may revisit the results in the future.
For now though, here are what readers feel should be our greatest concerns.
The set of next greatest concerns, each carrying 9% of the vote:
The next set, each with 8%:
All of the Above…
Next, each with 6%:
Next, each with 4%:
And, finally, with 2%:
I’ll be using this survey of Greatest Concerns for the next series of posts—doing research and providing links so you can explore the issues…
“Every age hath its own problem, and every soul its particular aspiration. The remedy the world needeth in its present-day afflictions can never be the same as that which a subsequent age may require. Be anxiously concerned with the needs of the age ye live in, and center your deliberations on its exigencies and requirements.
“We can well perceive how the whole human race is encompassed with great, with incalculable afflictions. We see it languishing on its bed of sickness, sore-tried and disillusioned. They that are intoxicated by self-conceit have interposed themselves between it and the Divine and infallible Physician. Witness how they have entangled all men, themselves included, in the mesh of their devices. They can neither discover the cause of the disease, nor have they any knowledge of the remedy. They have conceived the straight to be crooked, and have imagined their friend an enemy.”
Bahá’u’lláh, Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh, p. 212

very good! i agree. water and air are our most precious resources. we’re going to run out of water looooong before we run out of air. what am i saying – lots of people ARE already running out of water!
passed this on to a friend of mine, who is an anvironmental scientist specializing in water.
Say, Think there’s any way to get your environmental friend’s ideas for the next post here?
None of us is smart as all of us together,lets try and work all together to help in finding some solution of what is yet to come present and future.!
That’s so true, Catherine–unity in our endeavors is the only way to heal humanity!
Thanks for the question – I think that water scarcity and lack of approproate coverage for wastewater treatment are real concerns.
Thanks for your supportive comment! The more awareness of problems that we share, the more likelihood there is that constructive action will be taken…
