We've heard a lot about Haiti. The devastation is beyond what most of us can imagine. Today, one more survivor was found. I'm sure that was a truly joyous moment for all involved with the rescue, as well as the young woman who has survived this long. Big tragedies will garner our attention for a brief moment of our lives, until we move on to the next big thing. The people who are living in these areas, unfortunately, don't get to move on. I was moved by a story coming out of the Congo. I don't know all the details of what's going on over there, but I do know the inhumanity of the area is extreme, and not much progress has been made. A young woman from Portland has started a foundation to benefit the women of the congo. Her name is Lisa Shannon. This is the story she posted today. It's heartbreaking.
Read it and consider how you can do one small thing that might help the cause. Maybe it's spreading the word, saying a prayer or meditation. Maybe it's writing a check.
What is good for the congo, will be good for all the world.
Thank you for your help.
