The article shakes me to the core of my being. I cannot imagine trying to learn as an elementary school student and at the same time not knowing where I would sleep that night. I cannot imagine being a mother trying to make ends meet without a place to put my child to bed at night.
As I pondered the sadness in the article, I was reminded of Millard Fuller who passed away last week. Millard once said, "'There are sufficient resources in the world for the needs of everybody but not enough for the greed of even a significant minority" (Frances Romero in Time, February 16, 2009, 15).
Almighty God, forgive us. Help us. Fix us. Amen.
