All over the world, they peer from the shadows of deconstructed realities…
From the rice fields of Vietnam, laboring under a relentless sun.
From the slums of Kenya, neglected and starving .
From the mountains of Nepal, sold into slavery.
From the countryside of Zimbabwe, oppressed by the whims of a corrupt dictator.
And from countless other hidden cracks: 153 million orphans.
Vulnerable to disease, abuse, neglect, death.
The littlest voices among us… forgotten and powerless.
Unless you and I listen.

Reblogged this on Not Tomatoes.
As a mother of three grown and healthy sons, the very thought of children being abused and starved fills me with horror. If only more people who have influence and money acted, but then too many are busy counting their wealth….
It’s true… we can live in ignorance. Sometimes, though, I think we just get overwhelmed and don’t know where to start. Mother Teresa said “God counts in ones” and I think that’s what we have to do – find an organization we trust and start with one.

Because of you though they are nether forgotten nor powerless, my beautiful friend!!!!! 🙂
Yes. A simple, relevant call to awareness and action. I litterally got chills when I read this.
Bonnie, I was recently telling my son about your work with International Justice Mission on behalf of the boys who are forced to dive without equipment to place fishing nets in Africa. I’m grateful for the stand you’ve taken for the most vulnerable.
