I have a hard time feeling compassion for people in other countries who live in horrible conditions.
This is not because I’m heartless, it’s simply because I can’t comprehend what their lives are truly like. The images I see on TV and in print media simply are not enough for me to truly empathize with.
CharityWater.org have changed that for me though. This commercial brought it all home to me. I was beginning to suspect that I am heartless, but… well, just watch the commercial and you’ll understand. (If you’re reading this through RSS, you may need to visit my blog to be able to see the video)
I don’t know about you, but this cut me to the heart. Can you even imagine having to give your children water like that?
