God Grew Tired of Us

The last two days finally slowed down enough for me to recover a little from spring break. I’ve been catching up on my reading. In between laundry loads. I picked this book up at the library when I went in search of the documentary by the same name.

So what I’m wondering is how many movies, books, songs, benefits, letters, emails, etc have to exist about the Sudan before it is enough to stop the madness? I guess a whole lot more.

Especially if all I’m going to do about it is sit in my camp chair at chess tournaments and soccer games tomorrow weeping for the Sudanese. Maybe on Monday someone could help me put all that grief to good use. Can we start a Sudan refugee home in Central Arkansas? Help me out people.

What are you reading this weekend?
