I am tempted to preface this with "This is not for the weak at heart", but frankly, the truth of much of what goes on in this world is not for the weak at heart. I am tired of hearing others say, "Don't tell me about it. I can't stand to hear it." I am ashamed of having said those things myself. This world is full of violence -- most of it affecting those who are helpless to prevent it. But isn't there more we can do than to ignore it? Am I wrong to say that that is what most people in the US are doing?
