I don't know if I can go back to being oblivious again. Reading about Compassion Internationals trip to Guatemala has changed me. Read the stories of their trip with a warning from me, you may never be able to live the same way again.
I knew about the poor before but now my heart won't let go of what I've seen. We will begin sponsoring a child through Compassion next month. I will try to share the why and how of this decision as I can find the words. Right now I am overwhelmed with shame. I have so much more than most of the people in this world, yet I still find the desire to complain that what I have is not good enough and to long for more. What do I actually need?

My perspective is changing and I welcome it. I want to live a simple life so I can share with others instead of hoarding things for myself.
You can help by blogging for Compassion.
Or sponsoring a child.
