In Washington DC for the Global Philanthropy Forum, meeting with many of the incredible advocacy groups that exist to bring attention to the issues in Darfur and change the state of play there. I pray for continued collaboration between these groups and effectiveness within their missions. It is incredible to see the sacrifice of all of these people who have rallied around this cause. There is so much left to do. I am deeply discontented with a world where my three year old can play games on an iPod that does incredible things while our brothers and sisters in Darfur suffer and die at the hand of such evil. How does one reconcile these things? I look at my two sons and think about the gravity of love I have for them and know that the mothers in the wretched refugee camps care equally for their children and are forced to watch their children suffer under such terrible conditions.
