Half The Sky

Posted on

Today I have something for you all to watch.  It’s called “Half The Sky” and seriously, take some time to watch this documentary!  This is an extremely eye opening film, and is so important for everyone to watch.   I don’t want to spoil the content, but it touches on some very intense and important subjects regarding women and children all over the world (child trafficking, poverty, oppression, etc).  Let me know what you think.  You won’t regret it!   At least go to the website and read about it!  If you have a heart for kids or women’s empowerment (and much more!), watch it!  After watching it I realize anyone with a heart will benefit from seeing how people can make something beautiful out of such ugliness.

It broadcasts on PBS tonight!  You can also watch it on Netflix if you have that.

So?

No big post today. I just have a question for my readers.

What did you think of the documentary in my post Abandoned?

I just want to know if it hit you all as hard as it hit me.  How did it make you feel?  What were your thoughts?

If you haven’t yet watched each segment, please take some time to do so.   The story of these children is one which needs to be heard and seen.   Once you have watched it, I would love to know your thoughts.    You can click on the word “Abandoned” above to go to the page where you will find the video links.

Thanks, friends!

Hope to hear from some of you soon!

The plight of the orphan is great.    Their stories are heartbreaking.   They are suffering in silence in sad and lonely places.  They live worlds away with nobody to help them.  The following is a glance into a world most seldom get to see.  What these children endure, simply because they are labeled as different, is inexcusable.  Please don’t take my word for it, see for yourself.

This is a multiple part video, 9 parts to be exact.  I know it seems like a lot, but please watch it.  Even if  it’s just a few minutes here and there over the course of a few days.   I appreciate all of your support and all of your prayers!

First of all, I am so pleased to announce that sweet, deserving, precious little Porter…

HAS A FAMILY COMING FOR HIM!!!!    Praise God, his mom and dad found him!  Please join me in sending out our prayers to this amazing family.  Pray that all will go quickly, smoothly, and that Porter will be able to come home very soon.  

But what about all the others that are still waiting?  

Today,  while reading another blog, I found this documentary made by the same people who filmed “The Dying Rooms” which I provide a link for in My Research section.  This wonderful documentary takes us to the Ukraine and follows orphans and their struggles.  Please take some time to watch it.  Watch the whole thing.  You will see things that will inspire you.  You will see things that will break your heart.  You will even see the story of Sasha, the sweet boy picture below.  He is an example of the amazing potential these kids have if only given a chance.   Go here to see Ukraine’s Forgotten Children.  Watch it and share it!

 

Sweet Sasha

 

God Bless and thanks for reading!
