I was playing around with the music on my site. The Girl was showing me different songs I had never heard before and the video below is to one of them. It is slightly graphic in content. It makes me cry. Make sure you go to my playlist and stop the music before you press play on the video. Otherwise it will be confusing!
You know how they have those commercials on tv about kids starving in Africa? And you always feel sooooo bad and want to help them? Well, I always think of THESE kids when I see that kind of thing. Right here in the good ol' USA there are children being abused, murdered, starving, homeless.... you name it. It is happening. And there are tons of resources leaving our country that are needed here. Of course I feel bad for the people of other countries who are having the same problems.
But does it make sense to put out the fire in your neighbors house while your own house is burning down behind you?
And then there is the other side as well. Can you ignore your neighbors house burning when it might set fire to your own?
What's the answer?
All I know is I hold my children tight and try to protect them as best I can.
