"In a situation like this, there are two things we can do.  Either we can look at the enormity of the need and the problem and say, 'oh!  It's not possible for me, it's too much for me,  it is too overwhelming."  and we can back off or we can take a step of faith and go forward and say,  'yes Lord use me I want to make a difference in the lives of these children.'"      

"God kind of spoke to me and said, "Are you still waiting for the call?  When you see a need, just meet it."                                                                                                                Biju Thampy

WHAT do we do??!! HOW can we help??!! WHY must this be?!!

Proverbs 24:12
If you say, "But we knew nothing about this," does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who guards your life know it? Will he not repay everyone according to what they have done?

Look at the fear in that face.  Look into those eyes.  Now, in your mind, dare to replace that face with your own precious child's face.  Imagine the unbelievable fear when taken into terrible mistreatment.  Okay, I probably lost some of my readers already. That's okay.  I will still speak. 

Once we have seen, once we know, do we have a right to look the other way?   Can we just go back to our protected, sometimes self-indulgent lives?

We sometimes hear, "Please just don't even tell me about it!  I can't even think about that!"

I really do understand.  It is horrible to imagine. To let that sink into our hearts. Starvation.  Abuse.  Child Abandonment. Child Neglect. Horrible Mistreatment of Special Needs Children.  Human Trafficking.  Child Prostitution.  

Yet, we MUST be aware.  We MUST act.

If we cannot go and help, If we cannot take someone in, then we must at the very least use our VOICE!   The more voices, the more ears that hear and cannot ignore.

Here is a glimpse into crime against humanity.  Child slavery.  "Not Today" is out in local theaters now.

PLEASE take just a moment to watch this movie trailer!   If this glimpse doesn't shake you, you are not truly alive.  

Let's discuss.  Share your comments or ideas of what we can do to help children who are suffering.
 Let's get together and and talk about how to begin to make a change.
