New World Order?

What type of world do we live in today?

The political scientist will answer differently than the biologist or climate specialist. The poor feel differently from the hospitalized. The young test-taker faces different struggles than a grandparent.

Communications have changed aspirations, with more options offered to more people.

But while the simple dimensions of living remain, they're also easier to overlook. Starry skies are obscured by city lights and smog. Fragmented and mobile families share less of their dreams and discoveries. Communities are being rediscovered.

Technology offers tools for better living. But we each still struggle along life's paths.
