So here’s something i’ve been thinking about since February, when Ramon told me, “Don’t tell anyone this.. (hee) but on the plane on the way here i sorta wanted to crash so it could like LOST. i think i would really be an assett to the others on the island and it would be so cool!”
How many of us haven’t wanted to be in a place where we can save others or change the world or be a hero? Maybe it’d be a little dangerous but to REALLY live and to REALLY help someone would be fantastic, right?
I’m realizing that we have more impact on the world than I thought we did. The way we spend our time and money matters. Don’t stop reading yet!
Here’s the thing. if one kid, who normally eats once or twice a week, can eat every day for $6.00 per month…and programs that supply the food would expand if they had more funds (but they don’t)…then every six dollars a month I spend on me, is one child who literally doesn’t eat.
six dollars = one meal at subway (ish), or 1.5 drinks at leaf n bean…it’s disturbing to know these things. and now i dont know what to do with this information except to say that just because we dont live on an island with polar bears and smoke monsters doesnt mean that we’re living in a world of safety, comfort and ho hum daily life. our world is screwed up, we just happen to live on the part of the island that doesnt see the other side except on tv sometimes. you CAN make a huge difference if you decide to do it.
