There is famine in Afghanistan, and drought in Kenya.

And in Liberia, the president is directly involved in torture.

And the war in the Congo has stopped only long enough for tens of thousands of people to literally run over the border with nothing but their children.

Pakistanis are freezing with no aid after a massive earthquake.

Bombs killed innocent, unsuspecting civilians going about their everyday business today in Afghanistan, India, and Thailand.

Many of the 350,000 children who Buckner serves everyday are hungry, because food prices have doubled or tripled in the world's poorest places.

We are so, so very lucky. I need to be more generous, and more grateful.
