Somalia's Footprints- Blog Action Day
Footprints in the sand,
refugees seeking life,
they walk in the desert miles and miles,
to find water.
food is a luxury they dream of,
childhood is another.
I hear their voices in the desert,
a scorched landscape
is their world.
On the wings of hope they walk,
leaving footprints in the sand.
They struggle in silence,
they struggle with grace.
In our world,
I watch neighbors squander water,
sprinklers run as flowers wilt.
I think of a nation with footprints in the sand.
Can you see ?
Can you feel ?
Will you stand for action ?
My friend, Brian Miller brought it to our attention that today is Blog Action Day-Thank you, Brian.
