I experienced what Oprah calls an "A Ha moment" when I watched snipits of children needlessly dying when a pack of pills can save their life, and at that moment, I turned to look at my babies in the monitors sleeping so soundly in their comfortable beds - not a worry in the world. How blessed are we, that my only concern today was whether the rain would let up enough for Ally to see her friends. I wondered why some families have to endure such horrific atrocities while we are spared. Then I realized I need to stop questioning and just act. We are put in this position so we can help those who need it. Every penny we have to our name is from our gracious God, so do good with it.
We want to raise Ally and Nate to be empathetic, compassionate people who act upon it, because it simply is not enough to just feel bad about it. Go out into the world and do what you can with what you've got.
