Look Closer, Again

I wrote this last year.
But I don't know how to say this differently.
So, I'm saying it again:
The faces are the same.
They are joined by new ones.
But, mostly, they are the same.

So, I'll say this as many times as it needs to be said:



These are the faces of the littlest ones. 

Not necessarily the youngest, I mean, the littlest.

These are the ones it's so easy to pass over and look beyond. 

But these are our children too. 

We are so bombarded with causes and pictures that it's easy to get overwhelmed, desensitized, numb.

But look at these faces. 

Really, look at them

These are kids. 
They are orphans. 

They lost their moms and or dads to AIDS.

See them with your heart and soul. 

Do something.
Give them the dignity and humanity to really SEE them....
Then say a prayer for them, donate, reach out...
...touch them, hold them, hug them if you can, even.

They are just kids...our kids....who have a future, or should.
