Challenge: Can you really look away?

My friend, the Preacherman, posted this recently. I disagree with him on one point and one point only: Making that statement is in no way political. It's a statement. A human statement. This is not the government's problem, the president's problem, someone else's problem. It's OUR problem.

Almost 4 years ago, Americans were stunned at the "enormous loss" from the attacks on September 11th. "So many Americans lost" on that day.

Perspective: Sudan/Darfur has lost 335% MORE lives than we lost on that day. 335% more. Women are being raped, children are being starved, humans are dying. every. single. day.

My challenge to you today is one of action. Go to the Darfur Genocide website below and make a donation. Even the smallest of donations will help. Then, come back here and add your name, via comment, to my growing list of people that have taken action.

If you have a blog, you have a voice. Send your readers my way as well. If each person is able to reach one person, we can make a difference for the Darfurian people. Go, click below right now and make a difference.

Help Darfur

Thanks for the link. The more I reflect on it the more you are right. I don't view it as political. I just have to be very careful with my audience.

Ah, the advantage to not being a leader, I can say whatever I want and usually do. Hopefully we can start to make some kind of difference right? Hugs.

If we can prevent repeating the mistakes of the past we have come a long way. Thankfully we have people like Bono who are sounding the call for change.

Everywhere we look, there are opportunities to make a difference outside of our self-imposed boundary lines. THANK YOU for pointing yet another worthy cause out for us to step into and make a lifechanging impact. Count me in.

This is the second post on this subject and I can only hope that more go out. I love the analogy to 9-11 and the percentages. Good job and thanks for posting on such a well-deserved topic.
