My mentor, Gina Gaudio-Graves told me about Blog Action Day, and told me to participate.
I do what she tells me to do.
Well, my challenge was that I wanted to talk about solutions.
Poverty is definitely not a solution for anything, accept possibly pride.
But hey, I can do this. So I wrote a post about what poverty causes and possible solutions I could think of.
After all poverty isn’t just about a lack of money.
I wrote a good post. Then just before I hit publish, to post it on my blog, I lost power for 3 minutes.
Usually I save frequently to avoid losing work. Nope, not this time. Oh well, I had to get out the door this morning to go to my good friend Terry’s funeral.
I would have to rewrite it when I got home.
Well, here I am ready to re-write that post.
Challenge here is that I realize I was very passive this morning, almost depressed.
I can’t rewrite that post. I don’t feel passive anymore.
For the past 3 hours I have shared memories with all the people who loved Terry. I wish I would have been able to see more pictures of her.
If you hide from the camera, then please make an effort to get at least one picture of you, looking lovingly into the camera, at least a couple times every year. The people who love you will have a memory that will comfort them in the years ahead.
The few old pictures that were captured of my sweet friend filled me with her spirit. It brought a smile to my face.
I don’t feel depressed anymore.
I feel passionate about being part of a solution.
We all know what poverty looks like. It is hard to actually look at it. But if you have ever seen poverty, there are no words to describe it better than the pictures it leaves in your memory.
It isn’t pretty. Many of my friends have statistics in their Blog Action Day posts about poverty that will tell you just how devastating and prevalent it is in the world today.
Many people around the world cannot even imagine the opportunities and comforts that we take for granted everyday.
You can’t create, what you can’t imagine!
You also can’t CHANGE what you can’t imagine, and what you don’t acknowledge.
Right here in the United States are a whole lot of people who are hungry, who have no hope. They have no vision for the future. They feel lost and forgotten.
