No, this post is not about Billy Ray. Or Hannah Montana. Or anything even remotely related to Disney. (You can all breathe a sigh of relief.)
It’s about frustration. Pain. Sorrow. The inability to alleviate suffering. There are so many people that are suffering…
The millions of people that are impacted by the tragic earthquake/tsunami in Japan.
Orphans across the world, abandoned by their families, left to fend for themselves.
Villages without access to safe drinking water.
Children lying in hospital beds fighting for their lives.
The homeless man that begs at the corner, desperate for a dollar to buy food.
It’s everywhere. In far away countries and right in your own backyard.
But what can I do? How do you choose who to help? It seems so futile.
So I try to forget the images in my head of abused women, starving children, and tsunami victims. Because what good can it do to focus on the world’s suffering? But I know that’s not the answer.
But what is the answer?
