What Are Your Concerns?

Last night a gentleman sat next to me and said, “There are a lot of hungry people in the world.” As I began thinking of my approach to this open topic another gentleman brought up Bill Gates and Warren Buffet.  I did not understand exactly what if anything he was trying to point out by mentioning these two and the conversation wandered ferociously. One fellow said they move their money from one charity to another in order to avoid paying taxes and another said the big crisis in this world will come from the lack of food. I suggested the big problem will be the lack of potable water.

No “aha” moments at all from this brief interlude and the discussion ended.

This morning there was a debate concerning gay marriage on the show I was watching. Polling suggests this is gaining acceptance in the United States and will soon be a non-issue here.

These two items are examples of topics we could or may discuss in monthly chat groups I hope to be joining soon.

So I am asking you to send to me a list of your top three concerns for the upcoming year. This is totally open and can be anything from who is going to cut my lawn next summer to the civil wars going on in various parts of the world or even something like world hunger. If you only have one pressing concern that is fine, just share with us what they are.

You can post them here as a reply or send them to me via email. If you send email please title it “Concerns”. I will try to compile them and post results of your input here later.

Send email to: larryjben@gmail.com

  1. My main concern is the fracking issue, in other words no potable water. I was out collecting signatures this summer to get the issue on the 2014 ballot. Unfortunately we didn’t get enough. The campaign is in limbo right now, they are regrouping.
