The word 'Horizon' is derived from the Greek Verb 'HO HORIDZON' which translates as; 'TO LIMIT'.

It can also be found in the dictionary as a word used to describe; "the line that divides all visible directions into two categories: those that intersect the Earth's surface, and those that do not."

This got me thinking about division, and ultimately, equality upon the earth's surface. Which, in many parts of the world, rarely exists.

I am sure that many, if not all of you may have heard about the earthquake in Haiti, a country already known to be 'unlucky' . Even so here are some of the main facts::

Magnitude of the earthquake: 7.0
Estimate death toll by prime minister: 100,000
Number in need of emergency aid: 3 million
All of this added to the fact that out of Haiti's 9 million, more than half are unemployed and 70% live of 1.20 GBP a day.

    I read online today that the UK has raised the equivalent of just 20p per person. Pretty sure we might be able to do better than that.
