After a long night of sleep last night, I woke up this morning, got out of bed and poured myself a bowl of cereal. I sat at my computer and began to work. I've been working all day. Now, I'm exhausted and ready to lay my head down. Unfortunately, there are some of us who can never find rest. This post is dedicated to them. The ones who can never find rest.
Sade wrote a song called, "Pearls". The song is about a woman in Somalia who collects pearls by the roadside to give to her daughter. The sun beats down on her all day, but she has incredible strength and courage to keep going to find food for her little girl. Sade's live performance of the song is haunting. Her voice is filled with emotion and conviction demanding attention to those in need. When we live a life of convenience, it's easy to forget them, but it's not because we don't care. We just need to be reminded that we don't live in a world of our own.
