Scared

Have you ever asked any of these questions...



Are poor kids in Africa really as hard off as the charities claim?

Isn't the media just embellishing the problem because they need a good news story?

Why don't these poor people do something to help themselves?

Why should I help the poor in another country when I need to care for my own family here at home?

Why are all of these celebrities getting worked up over poor kids "over there" - aren't they just seeking publicity for themselves?

Why should I care...the problem doesn't affect me?


All of these questions and more can be answered by reading Scared by Tom Davis. I just finished reading Scared this morning and posted my review on Amazon. You can read the review for yourself, but, as someone who works for an NGO and cares deeply about children living in poverty, I ask you to please read this book. It will change your perspective. It will break you. It just might change your life.
