Let us not be complacent any longer

This baby was burned during a bombing in Darfur. This is the kind of picture that you don't want to look at. You gasp and think, "how awful!" then quickly move along with your day. The fact is, I'm tired of being witness to the tragedies in this world while idly standing by and twiddling my thumbs. One such tragedy is the genocide that has been perpetuated in Sudan. There is currently a campaign going on called A Million Voices for Darfur. They aren't asking for your money, and they are hardly asking for your time. Clicking on the following link will take you to a digital postcard urging President Bush to take action in Darfur. You don't even have to write anything if you don't want, just fill in your name and click send. If enough people take the time, we will present our president with the resounding message that we will not allow this genocide to continue. Thank you!

Another way to help is buying a t-shirt. The proceeds go to help the victims of genocide. My friend Ross and I put together an order of shirts last year. Let me know if you're interested and I'll put another order together. These are all small things but they are things that you and I can do and I feel that has to count for something.
