http://vimeo.com/114370823 Things are speeding up around here as we get backpacks ready plus an assortment of other gifts together for Saskatchewan children. Even with the joy of that, my heart is heavy with the news I read this morning of the Taliban's slaughter of 100 children in Pakistan. At times like these, I don't even know how to pray......words seem so inadequate, instead it is like a groaning of spirit and liquid tears. With these two events playing thru my mind, I wanted to share this video I found on my friend, Kelly Montijo Fink's page. It reminds me of "The Huron Carol", only the "The Huron Carol" was made for First Nation kids and families so that they could have a context for the Christmas story. This is doing the same kind of thing - only for westernized kids. I pray that we will treasure our children, the world over, and continue to speak out against injustice wherever it is found.
