Technology has brought us a lot of conveniences and it has made our world a very global community. We see and hear about what's happening worldwide nearly as soon as it happens. Yet so many of us live in an isolated world where it is very easy to acknowledge pain and suffering in all parts of the earth while still not embracing the fact that we can help make a difference in the lives of those who are without so much of what we take for granted.
Our children will inherit an even more global community than we have. Many will live and work in places far from home. I hope that they will accept responsibility for helping others less fortunate than themselves, both locally and internationally.
Please go to Yarn Harlot's blog and this link for more information about Doctors Without Borders and Knitters Without Borders. If you are able, accept the challenge. Our children learn what we teach them.
