Object out of Place
I saw an add on my computer the other day while I was online playing Tetris.
World Vision, a non-profit Christian Missions organization, was trying to raise awareness and increase Child sponsorship. I had heard of them before, I sponsor a little twelve year old girl from Nueva Esperanza, a mission in Colombia, South America. So, I was not unfamiliar with their work. But this particular add caught my attention.
Who can you afford to bail out?
A major bank?
A mortgage company?
A child slave?
And below the words, a picture. Of a little girl, around the same age as Leanis. A little girl who will never know the freedom that I know, or even the food, education, and medical attention that my 35 dollars a month brings to Leanis and her family. I don’t remember stopping pressing the keys, but, apparently, I did. Because moments later, I lost my game.
