I just saw a news special on the famine in Somalia. I couldn't watch any more it was so painful - children like skeletal old people - a father using a few drops of his precious water to wash the dead body of his baby before digging a grave on the sand.
And all this is going on, I thought, while I worry and moan over my everyday little problems. I couldn't believe how easily we block out real suffering when it's far away.
When I have some money, no new gun, I'm sending it to some aid-agency for those poor people. I don't know which is best, some of them keep a huge amount of your money for "overhead". I want it to go to the starving. The estimates of how many will die and have died is jaw-dropping.
Anyway, I couldn't help posting.
Thanks for reading a depressing subject...
