Ok, so I had all intentions of posting my fantasy football question yesterday for everyone’s input.
But then I was sickened by what’s going on in Sudan & the Darfur region. Sickened. I don’t know what to do. It’s just horrible, & getting worse. I was going to post about that instead, but couldn’t even get actually make myself do it.
It’s just so sad that I sometimes think so much about it & my head hurts & all I can do is cry. B/c I can see them in my head. Helpless.
I do need to post about it though. I may tonight.
But in the meantime, I came across something else that was also disturbing. In a whole different spectrum of disturbance from the Darfur genocide. But it’s like apples & oranges. It’s still very disturbing also. You can scroll down to my ‘Evolution by Dove’ post & I’ve updated it to include the said annoyance.

Mama has cried over that Dafur place too and she once told Papa a story about the women in the Congo who are gang raped and beaten on a daily basis. Mama is very emotional like you. She wants to help these people and feels so helpless. Mama is a good samaritan.’
She’s Angelina Jolie without the money and without Brad Pitt. (But she says Papa is better than Brad Pitt)
Chels- I know how your mama feels about Brad Pitt (& Wentworth Miller too)!
One of the probs is that there is no system in place to bring anyone to justice there. You can sign your name to a petition to send a UN peacekeeper to Darfur (right-click & select ‘open in new window’).
It’s really the UN who will do anything. I’ve written letters to my state reps here in the US, but all I got back was a form letter.
One more thing…
The link I posted above was esp. for Chelsea’s mama who doesn’t live here in the US.
For those that live in the US, go back to this post of mine from before, & there is a link to write to the US gov’t. there. Again, it’ll work betta if you right-click & open in a new window.
I believe there is a new British Play about Darfur. But I’m unable to find anything about it. I’m probably confusing things, and I don’t remember the title, which clearly doesn’t help.
Also, thanks for updating the Dove vid post with the porfolio from FluidEffect. They really got me thinking and I had to post on the subject. Thanks to BlogPortland, there’s a link to Lena’s post on the vid as well (in my comments). Seems the Dove vid has sparked a good deal of discussion.
