I look back to my childhood and wonder how we got from there to here.
We started out with me and my mother and father. Then with all the aunts and uncles. Next the cousins and their offspring (and cousins).
Now when I married I adopted a whole other family of my husbands.
When my oldest son married, we added more family.
The youngest son married with still more family added on.
So I became a member of all this. It shows how people are increasing. This is all in several short generations.
The reason for writing this is because of an article in the Sunday paper about Africa, how they will increase to two billion people by the year 2050.
The world is having difficulty now in feeding the people and the water will not be enough either. We have it here in Arizona.
We are building housing developments to house more people, using up the land for growing food and our rivers and washes are drying up as well. So it can happen here – Over Population.
