I interrupt this blog to ask you to visit our friend Heidi's blog for a staggering first-hand report of the famine in Ethiopia, where she is right now. This famine is very real. This is happening in 2008. As citizens of the world we MUST find within us the obligation to do something to help ... whatever that may be ... We can no longer just shake our heads, mutter "how sad" and move on. I am personally sickened that just today I "cleaned out" my refrigerator of the "excess" food I threw away!
I know that Heidi will have more posts and information on how we can get the help into the hands of the people who will actually make sure that these families and children will receive the food they so desperately need. So please continue to read her blog for information and updates. We can get the resources into the right hands. And the best hands to lay it all in is His hands and with that, I ask that if you do, and if you will... pray for the men, women and children of Ethiopia and other places around the world filled with a suffering we will likely never truly know.
