This article breaks my heart. How do we help these women? Is there a foundation, anyone, who is helping, to whom we can contribute? I hate it that women are so victimized, the world over. I want to help. But, I am not sure how I can? I want to help these women in dire situations. I want to help all of them. I do not know how. Suggestions? Ideas? We must stand up and help others.

Isnt it sad that we are so preoccupied with legalizing gay marriage that we turn a blind eye to the real issues facing humanity like the plight of these poor widows or the rape epidemic in our own military?
societies priorities are a mess.

It is noble and good to want to help those far away from us. And we should do so. But writing a check for people far away is often a way of assuaging our guilt when the more immediate need is all around us.

If you want to do something, watch out for and bless widows who live among us.

Don't know any widows?

Go to any senior care center. Ask staff who you can serve. You will find hundreds. Many are lonely.

Exercise compassion locally. It will spread. But even if it does not, at least ONE person will be blessed. Two if you count yourself.
