After reading this about brutal attacks on girls/women who attempt to get educated in Pakistan (many of whom are not deterred), I'm struck by the extent we who have what others suffer for take what we have for granted and squander it. In the same way that people who are starving would be appalled to see the food we throw away, I'm sure many would be equally appalled at the many other things we treat recklessly as if having little or no value.

So, what to do about it? How to use what I've been given and she's been denied through no merit of mine and no fault of hers? What is the best use of my undeserved fortune?
