Some Things I Just Can’t Stop Thinking About

Maybe it’s because ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ is playing in the background, even as I type.

Maybe because since seeing the movie, I’ve been addicted to the soundtrack.
Maybe because of the letter we received this week from Arpita Nayak, the little girl from India we sponsor through Compassion International.  The letter in which she details the story of the Hindu extremists chasing her and her Christian family out of their home, into the forest.  And how she spent the next few months in a refugee camp.  And how glad she is to be back in school, finally.
Maybe because I’ve been following this blog.  And this one.  And this one.  Anne, Pete and Angie are all in India right now, on a Compassion bloggers trip, seeing first-hand the impact of $32 a month on the lives of kids and their families.
I just can’t shake this country.
