As of 12:00am, 4,105 children have been orphaned due to AIDS. By the end of this 24 hours, 6,000 children will be orphaned. 6,000. To be honest, Luke's heart condition and health is often on the forefront of my mind. It can be difficult to move my thoughts a continent away, to the suffering of so many children who are living alone with their brothers and sisters because their parents have died and their relatives have no resources to take in one more child. So I feel extra thankful today for World Vision for helping me step out of my own situation and remember those affected by AIDS.
