I am SO lucky.
Today I have read about Bernice, a 22 year old single mum in Haiti who sleeps with a machete under her mattress in order to protect herself from predators during the night in the tent where she sleeps with her daughter.

Meanwhile, I get to lock the door to our apartment, turn the air-conditioning on,
complain about the noise from cars on the street and then fall safely asleep.
The world is not fair.
