putting it all into perspective.
There were almost a million people in Louisville. Less in Syracuse, and if it doubled in size, it would reach a million. I think about this as I hear news of the famine reaching the horn of Africa and how millions of children, mothers, and families are living in poverty, drought, and hunger. Suddenly, the American grief is put into perspective and I wonder, how good has our humanity been?
What good does concern on a blog have? Where do responsibilities reside?
We walk the same earth. Worry about the same basic needs...and yet. Yet, it doesn't make sense to think that I finger-piano my thoughts as a daily post, and somewhere the music is much more dire.
