I admit, the first 7 minutes I thought Singer’s lecture was pure common sense. Of course we would all want to stop children from dying!
I pondered further. I guess I do know people who don’t share time or money, believing everything they have is just that; theirs.
Find 17 minutes this weekend, pour a cup of coffee, and watch this Ted Talk. (Warning: the beginning scene shows a child’s tragic death. It is uncomfortable, but I feel necessary to take us into the reality of the world around us.)
Do you agree with Singer? It’s easy to say yes because it seems like the right thing to do. If you disagree with him, will you share why?
