So many outreached hands so little time

Our daughter Rachel is in Ethiopia with Canadian Humanitarian where they are providing health care for these children. Part of her role as a nurse is to instruct. Folklore and myth inform much of their understanding of HIV and Hepatitis B. Poverty, prostitution and alcoholism are rampant. Women have no power and limited opportunity. Universal education is not available.

I am moved by these children's smiles, their eagerness and their youth. What  will their future be?

Que sera sera.

Our grandson is going to Mexico next month to play with orphans. It's not a fair world.
