I'm involved in several different associations. Sport associations, professional associations, political associations. All are very different. They have one thread in common: they fight amongst themselves.
Today I've been thinking about the things that are really important in life. These things are not committees and associations.
I came across this story, called Four Feet Under. It's a news piece about the deaths of 14 children in 2005 who were involved with CPS in San Antonio. It struck me suddenly: What if all those people on all those committees that fight amongst themselves fought for children like these? How many could be saved?
Here's the link for the video about two of the children.
The full story about the fourteen beautiful, innocent children can be found here.
Who speaks for these kids? Who bears witness to their life?
