Darfur--Don't Forget Our Brothers and Sisters

This is the first Thanksgiving that my wife and I have spent alone since, well, I can't recall.
The parade is blaring on the TV, the aroma's from the kitchen are intoxicating, and the cat and dogs feel the joy in the air. We are deeply blessed.

Let's not, however, forget our brothers and sisters suffering in Darfur as we eagerly scarf down our traditional 2400 calorie meal then make a bolt for the recliner. We are a world community that gets caught up in commercialism, the American past-time, overlooking those suffering throughout the world who need our help and prayers.

A Recipe for Peace:

  • Free your heart from hatred
  • Free your mind from worries
  • Be a good steward of your Earth Suit
  • Live simply
  • Give more
  • Expect less
  • Live in a constant state of gratefulness
  • Love
