Have you seen this Child?? The answer is YES!

Have you seen this child...they are everywhere in your local community...often coming from homes with poverty, parents with addictions, abuse, mental health issues, single parents, the list goes on.

What you have to ask yourself is why we can ignore them??  Why we can justify the latest cool gadget or latte and yet we can't find time or money to support local charities or churches who try to help these children.  

Sorry if I sound cranky today...but I'm tired of hearing from well meaning people that they can't deal with looking at these poor little ones...they would have trouble sleeping...maybe what they really mean is that they don't want to feel bad.  Ignorance is bliss. 

“Never worry about numbers. Help one person at a time and always start with the person nearest you.”
