What can we do when the suffering we see is so distant and we feel powerless compared with the forcesMoreImages of starving children, bombed villages and mass graves brought to us by television in the comfort of our homes implicitly call on us to act. What can we do when the suffering we see is so distant and we feel powerless compared with the forces behind the suffering?
