Do you ever wake up in the middle of the night or really early in the morning with your head just WHIRLING with thoughts and feelings? This morning was one of those times for me. I was thinking about how CRAZY our world seems to have become. Is it just me or do you all think this too!?! I mean people are killing each other over the STUPIDEST things these days. The most recent one that just shook my brain was the rampant murdering of Albino men and women in Tanzania to use their body parts in superstitious rituals. Of course we all know about the nutty conflict in Darfur. Then there are the MILLIONS dying in the raping and pillaging for all the mineral wealth in the country of my birth, the Congo (DRC). These are JUST a few examples on ONE continent!!! I’m not even going to get into the hatred among peoples of different countries, religions, and sects in the Middle East. And then on a more personal level, over Thanksgiving I hear about a young man close to where Cami’s parents live who was beaten nearly to death in has own back yard by three neighborhood boys while grilling with his family! HUH?!?
So let me ask you this…what would happen if we all just dropped the blinders from our eyes, melted our boarders, tore down our walls, put our differences aside, and realized that we are all just brothers and sister on this beautiful planet? What if we all learned to dance TOGETHER!?!
