How the rest of the world lives

We in the prosperous (prosperissimus!) West take so many things for granted.

We also hear the petulant whines of pampered people talk about "oppression."

The headline above links to a story about what women face in many parts of the world -- in this case, Nigeria.

Shocking; but still full of hope.

Poverty -- true poverty -- simply overwhelms the senses. Pieces like this leave me speechless. God bless those who follow that speechlessness with action.
