Sometimes it is hard to know how your words are perceived.
For example, how will you perceive the post just before this one? Does it seem a little self-righteous? That wasn't my intent, but it is hard to know how things will come across.
I have been thinking a lot lately about the hurt that takes place all over the world. The poverty, the starvation, the orphans... There is a lot of hurt.
I recently watched the movie Slumdog Millionaire. I cried for hours after that movie, thinking of children in India and other countries living in poverty without parents. Kids living in garbage dumps. Children taken advantage of by evil people. There is so much injustice in the world.
And I live in a comfortable house, completely removed from their reality. Their reality is a movie to me, or a photograph.
And I keep thinking that I want to do something. So I write checks, but it doesn't seem like enough. We are adopting, but it doesn't seem like enough.
I don't know if anything will ever seem like enough, but maybe if we all do something, it will start to seem like enough.
I don't really have any answers, just a lot of questions and a desire to do something more.
I'm just not sure what that is...
