Thought provoking video

I found this video on another blog today. I was amused... teenage affluenza (or kindergarten affluenza at my house!)

But the longer the video goes on, the more thought provoking it becomes.

These sorts of things have always made me stop and think. But now, it is personal. And so hard to think about. Yet, there is despair and hunger and hurt all around us - our cities, or states, our country, our world. And we, generally, are very good about NOT thinking about it - pushing it to the backs of our minds.

We need to stop pushing and start internalizing it. As hard as it is for us, it is much harder for those who live with that despair every day.
