Ebola crisis in West Africa.
Cruel killings in Syria and Iraq.
Suicide bombs in Afghanistan.
Corruption about minerals in Congo.
Civil War in Sudan.
Those are headlines in newspapers or TV stations.
News about some people in some countries.
But they’re not.
For us, they’re friends, beloved faces in familiar countries.
And these are not just headlines we can scroll past, these are terrible news from places we have grown to love and know all too well.
We know too much to not care.
We have seen too much to just close our eyes and ears.
News are painful to watch, they pierce through your soul and you can only cry out at the injustice taking place in countries you consider home.
And there’s always this fear that one day you’ll see a familiar face on the screen.
We know too much to just sit back and let things happen.
So we speak up, go behind the scenes to places and people hidden from the world’s eyes.
And so we cry out to the One who also knows and sees.
Who’s always seen.
And whose heart breaks as much as ours.
Here’s to all those speaking up so bravely and letting us know as well.
Just one brilliant example are Augustin Pictures. Go and check out their amazing work!
