Sickness, family problems, education of children, drug addiction, jobs, etc.
In times of great need, those concerned do not speak “A drop in the bucket”. However, for those of us who live far away from such misery and suffering this all too quickly becomes a phrase we use lightly as a cheap excuse to remain passive and do nothing.
The children, the sick, the hungry, and the catastrophe victims are thankful for every life-saving drop. I have often witnessed the face of a desperate mother lighten up with hope, who had no more nourishment for her infant. I have also seen seriously ill people’s hope restored, as they received urgently needed medicine.
