Do you have days when you just want to day in bed, pull the comforter up to your nose and ignore the call of the world? News of terrorist attacks, FGM, increased teenage suicide, kids dying of malaria … all of these things and so many more, can make you feel the world is a bad place. And those are just the big things.
