Feasting during Famine
I know I am behind in posting. I have about 6 started and never finished posts. I've been thinking a lot lately about Somalia and it's hard to post about what we are feasting on daily while 29,000 children under the age of 5 have died from famine in the past 90 days in Somalia. I lack words to describe my horror as I read, from my food filled pantry home, what is happening there. Mother's losing 4 of their 5 children within 24 hours. Mothers leaving their weakest children to die in the bush so that they can walk faster to what they hope will be food aide, to save their stronger children. It's nothing anyone should ever have to live through. I wonder and I doubt that enough aide will ever come. Heartbreaking.
I will get back to posting. Tonight.... is a plea and prayer for Somalia.
