These are people we met in passing. IDPs on the side of the trail, basically hanging out at what was once a store. In this picture Gideon is sharing a picture he took of them on his digital camera. I often felt that we could bring little to the situation, to these people who have lost most everything except dignity. In the end I decide for myself that it's worth it enough for moments like this. You share what you have at the moment. You care enough to take a picture. You work towards goals that are likely to be unfulfilled in our lifetime. And on the way you make friends.

I read something today that this post reminds me of, let me jot it down---
"It is not in trying to be good to people so much as being good with them or among them that this world is to be saved."

I think this post illustrates that sentiment as well as anything I can think of.
