I'm so glad to see you sharing your heart in a place were the whole world can read it. I think the question that might need to be addressed is the one you mention in your second to last line, 'what do we do differently?' The gay marriage question doesn't force me to do anything differently, the abortion issue doesn't force me to do anything differently and that's what makes them easy targets. The poverty issue requires me to ask how much 'luxury' and 'extra' do I have above and beyond the poverty level and what is my responsibility with it. It's a question that requires more than outrage, it requires definitive action on our part and that's not going to be easy.
As former President, Bill Clinton has said, 'I am obsessed with only two things:I don't want anybody to die before their time and I don't want to see good people spend their energies without making a difference...you can change the reality of human history by systemic action.'
