Syrian Refugee Children

Children are the most vulnerable and innocent in war situations however they are the most affected and harmed. Pray for them at Christmas.

The media distorts and dictates people's view over young women and girls. It creates a rift in society whereby women are seen as only sexual objects without a brain. It also creates an image that young girls feel that they have to fulfil which sets them back in life and creates low self esteem issues. Barbie is seen as a perfect woman but when I asked a young girl (aged 4) what she thought of Barbie she said:
"Barbie is very pretty, I want to be like her."
I then asked her if she thought Barbie could be a lawyer and she said:
"No but Ken could."
If we are creating a stereotype that girls should just be beautiful and wait on the man hand and foot what society will we have? People do not realise that the media world is distorted to increase consumerism. Society is dictated by a fake image and the next generation will be governed by consumerism and media.

Prayer for Victims of Newtown Killings

God of merciful love,
Help these families who are victims of murder
To accept the reality of such senseless acts of violence
Without, at the same time,
Succumbing to the despair of so great a loss.
May this violence become for them, instead,
A steppingstone toward greater union with you.

What of the Tamil Children?

I am posting this because I am half Tamil. 

3 Things that Need Changing

1. Climate Change The world is slowly dying and amendments need to be made to the way we live. Too much energy is being used and we are slowly killing the Earth.
2. Eradicate Poverty. We cannot let children suffer and starve whilst those in Western society pander to consumerism.
3. Gender Equality. I have grown up in a patriarchal world where women are second in the pecking order. We need gender equality in the world.
