Week 48: Little helper on Flickr.
I came home to see Angel sweeping (suburban Manila doesn’t believe in rakes) fallen leaves in the driveway. She wasn’t helping much, but the effort was there.
There’s a parable in the Bible about two sons who were instructed by their father to maintain the family vineyard. The first son said that he wouldn’t do it, but ended up changing his mind and obeyed. The second son said to his father that he’d work in the vineyard, but never ended up going at all.
Lip service is worthless. So much hype has been given the issue surrounding Joseph Kony’s atrocities in Uganda. Many seem to believe that it’s enough to reblog the video, to share it on their wall, to Tweet #StopKony2012 and think all that talk alone is going to make a difference. A friend said it best, “Hope is great. Now let’s work on a solution. Be about it, then talk about it. Seriously, get involved.”
Here’s everything you need to know about Kony: vimeo.com/37119711
