Do something.

Do you ever hear about things going on in the world & feel completely overwhelmed? The news is enough to make me crawl under a rock. Lately I have had placed in front of me stories & statistics, and very simply just a reminder that there is life happening outside of my little comfortable circle. I am finding myself wanting to plug my ears & cover my eyes because at times the stories are too painful to hear about. If I'm honest, those reminders pour a sense of guilt all over me.....because how can I just go about my very cushioned daily routine knowing that people truly are suffering? It's been a real invasion to my life. And I find it tempting to call it overwhelming - knowing I can't fix it all, and therefore somehow let that justify my not doing anything. How could that possibly make me feel justified? Am i alone here? I am being pretty transparent.
But in this desire to 'change the world' - I'm not really that naive. But I do believe we all can do SOMETHING. So meet these kids. Realize that they are real, alive & living somewhere. In need of your help. Think about this. Pray about it. Pray FOR them. And do something. Spread the word.

You have done something, Cupcake. YOU are the reason that I sponsored Walter from Nicaragua.
Love you,
