Gaining Perspective


I received a notice on my blog that someone linked to one of my blog posts entitled “Children of Africa“.  After reading their site, I felt compelled to link to their page here and I commented:

“I give monthly to “Love 146″; an organization that helps victims of sexual trafficking. I’m a very positive person, but have an underlying sense of sadness that remains despite my “good” life. I believe we’re all connected and somehow feel deep in our soul the pain that so many people endure. :(“

  1. After spending time in Rwanda August, 2010 and visiting the Genocide Museums, the stories are unbelievably horrible. Unfortunately not confined to Africa. The Killing Fields in Cambodia produced a similar reaction for me. The DRC situation is also heart breaking. Like you, I also contribute to what I hope are effective charities, but there is still such a feeling of helplessness. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. It is so sad.

    • After visiting the Holocaust Museum during my recent Washington D.C. trip, I read online that Mao Zedong of China leads the dictators that put to death the most people…78 million, compared to Hitler at 17 million. Stalin was #2 at 23 million.
