We’ve just made it back home to Cleveland, Ohio, for a pit stop and the next few entries will be catching up on some other highlights from this last tour… In Holden, New York, we talked with Jean Hach, who was a missionary in the small village of Nyery, Kenya. Elementary and high school students there were required to wear shoes. And the poverty was such, said Ms. Hach, that many of the students would walk barefoot to school carrying their shoes. And they would only wear them in school, so the soles would last… Several stops prior, I met with Richard Duffee who taught school in both the South Bronx, New York, and in India. “Third world poverty is a whole different creature,” said Duffee. “If you get any extra money in the Third World, you spend it on food… because many people there are slowly dying of malnutrition.” Duffee was so impacted by what he saw in India (families, for instance, living in six-feet wide huts with mud floors and two threadbare changes of clothes…), that he decided on a new income for himself, the “world average income.” That, by the way, is $9,543 a year. So every year since 1996, Duffee, who teaches law, has set aside $9,543 for his family of four — and the rest goes to Third World relief funds and other charitable funds. “Everyone has a right to an equal share of the world’s resources,” he told me.
