I must repeat that the world population explosion in the poor countries was not their fault but the fault of the western countries. These people did not have too many children and they knew that the majority of them would die in their infant age. And then point four of President Truman came saying we cannot let these children die in such large numbers in the poor countries. Let us help them survive. And the experts went there and helped prevent to a large degree the mortality of those children.
But not knowing the long-term consequences, not even knowing what the world population was in those years when this happened, it did not occur to anyone to tell the people in the poor countries that they did not need an average of six children to be born to have at least two left to take care of their old age or for the cultivation of their land.
So they went on having six children and by the time the United Nations created a major World Population Division with the right statistics and censuses in the world, it was too late. The children were born and the populations in those countries were young people who are highly reproductive.
It takes many years to reverse such a global phenomenon. Even today in 2001 we will still have at the end of the year 76 million more people on this planet.

My evening prayer:
Thank You, O God, for having let me live another day, for having let me see so many things, thought so many thoughts, felt so many feelings.
Each day is one of Your incredible, precious gifts.
Thank You, O God.
I love you immensely for the miracle of my life.
