It's true that I have shared this video on my blog a couple of times in the past few years. But it seems as the years go by the message of this Rwandan pastor's words are more relevant to me than ever before.
When I consider the plight of the orphan, the widow, the homeless, the sex slave, and the marginalized I tend to get overwhelmed with their pain. But I want to be overwhelmed with their pain. I want their pain to stay fresh on my mind. I want it to consume me. I want it to move me.
I don't want to forget.
That's why I'm posting this video again-- To remind me of the plight of the marginalized. This video is about AIDS, but the message is true for all areas of social justice.
So watch it with me and let its message move you to compassion.
If you and I don't do something, who will?
