The Chidren are dying in Uganda:
torture, murder, rape
Can I trade in my Honda:
Escalade, Passat, Escape
A young man will not be home again
It’s just his body that’s coming back
I really like the Escalde
Could I see one in black?
HIV and STD
No clean water left to drink
The SUV with DVD
That’s the one I think
Sad Songs and rainy days:
Things that used to make me smile
Cold Coffee and my own way:
Things I must give up a wile
As the New year approaches I mourn the state world affairs and the passing of of a young man from my home town. Most of all I mourn my lack of prayer and care for the world around me.
This New Year I want to do more than just bitch about the way the world is. I want to be part of changing it for the better. This will mean giving up some things. I have not the money to throw away on a new Passat (admittedly my dream car). However, I can start by drastically reducing my intake of iced latte’ and frappuccinos (admittedly my favorites). I don’t know what all of those things are yet but I am working on it.
And there are things I can do. I can love. I can lend a hand an ear. I can give of my time my resources my my prayers.
Please check out the links above and pray – if nothing else please pray. As Tobyone reminds us: if we only reflect within we deflect the world around us (Thanks man).
