Not long ago, my husband and I went to this beautiful lake and camped on an island (where I took this picture). It is beautiful. Surrounded by crisp, clear water that one can see all the way down. As we canoed to the island, I got a feeling of "heights-dizziness" because I could see very deep - just below me. It was so clear that it made me a little uncomfortable.
Across the globe, hundreds of thousands of fellow human beings are starving to death, thirsting to death. We can all help by going to faminenomore.org and donate through World Vision (or any number of other wonderful charities who are helping).
Because, really, we could go without to save a life.
