Blog Action Day

Today is blog action day for 2008 and the subject is poverty. Like many of the bloggers have posted, I am very thankful for all of my blessings. I still remember traveling outside of the U.S. for the time in 1995 and seeing the poverty in some areas of Jamaica, which is certainly nothing in comparison to many other areas of the world, but was still far worse than what we would consider poor in the United States. There are many excellent organizations out there. The one I will call out is the Christian Foundation for Children and Aging. My wife and I have been sponsoring a young girl in Guatemala since 1997, and I am very glad that this is enabling her to have proper clothing, care, and education, and to share her learnings with her family. With every letter we receive from her, it reminds me to be thankful for what I have, and thankful that I can help a family get on the path of a better life with each generation. Please considering helping out.
