Happy Hump Day! (That always makes me giggle. I swear I'm such an adolescent boy.)
Anyway, I'm not going to ramble or make unfunny jokes today. Well, not on this blog anyway. I just wanted to share a story with you guys and hopefully, you'll pass it on. With the election, and our horrible economy, and Clay Aiken coming out of the closet, (sorry - unfunny joke) there hasn't been a great discussion of world news. The people of Darfur (Sudan) are still in the midst of genocide. Yes, GENOCIDE. Thousands are displaced, and hundreds of thousands of innocent women, men, and children have lost their lives. I get news updates from a lot of organizations that are helping over there, and I thought I would post one I just received. There are links on their site with ways to get involved and more information on the crisis. Even if you cannot physically or financially help, I believe deeply in the power of words and thoughts. Keep those people in your thoughts (and if you pray) prayers. Hug your children/family/friends extra tight and be grateful for every tiny gift received.
Here's the link to the story from Save Darfur:

Here's the cutest little activist ever:
And here is a beautiful song by the UK duo, Mattafix:
