This is making my heart hurt.

We took some Compassion International quizzes today in Economics. One was about AIDS. The statistics on the contraction and death rates for children are staggering. There were pictures of beautiful HIV positive and AIDS infected children as well.

It’s the one not the many that penetrates the heart.

We saw statistics of poverty and health and abuse. We talked about child trafficking and that the majority of child deaths are caused by things like smoke and bad water and contaminated food.

Some hurt for the first time, some let the pain steal into them. Some cried out that it hurt.

“Good, I’m trying to help make you both better,” I thought to myself.
