Help for Africa














































I don't normally post about things like this on my blog, but during lunch I was reading the news (briefly) and came across this slideshow and story on msnbc.com about the famine in Eastern Africa.

As I was looking at the slideshow the pictures drew me in. I must be living under a rock because I had no idea that a famine was happening. I started crying and feeling really guilty for being so stressed over my wedding preparations when there are children and families dying of hunger. I am really blessed.

Those pictures certainly put everyday worried into perspective.

I try to keep myself fairly well informed, and this news even caught me by surprise the other day. It's such a huge tragedy that I don't know how to wrap my head around it. But it's not something I can just ignore either.
