THE GOOD AND BEAUTIFUL GOD
JESUS WANTS US TO CARE FOR ONE ANOTHER AND HAVE COMPASSION FOR ONE ANOTHER, NOT "HELP OURSELVES"

BRINGING RELIEF, JUSTICE AND PEACE TO THE FORGOTTEN OF THE WORLD

I CONTINUE TO SPONSOR A LITTLE GIRL IN HAITI AND A LITTLE BOY IN COLUMBIA THROUGH COMPASSION INTERNATIONAL, A CHRISTIAN MINISTRY -- IT IS ONE OF THE MOST MEANINGFUL THINGS THAT I HAVE DONE IN MY LIFE. THERE ARE SO MANY CHILDREN LIVING IN EXTREME POVERTY AND IN REFUGEE SITUATIONS IN THIS WORLD AND WE NEED TO CARE ABOUT THESE CHILDREN AND WORK TO MAKE THINGS BETTER FOR THESE CHILDREN, WHO CANNOT HELP THEIR CIRCUMSTANCES. RECENTLY, I SIGNED-UP FOR TWITTER, WHICH ENABLES ME TO SUBSCRIBE DIRECTLY TO NEWS RELEASES FROM UNICEF AND OTHER WELL-KNOWN NEWS ORGANIZATIONS AND MINISTRIES AND IS A MUCH MORE RELIABLE SOURCE OF INFORMATION THAN FACEBOOK. IT IS SUCH A SHAME WHAT HAPPENED IN THE RECENT PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION WITH THE MISINFORMATION ABOUT THE CANDIDATES, PARTICULARLY HILARY CLINTON, THAT WAS BEING SPREAD ON FACEBOOK. THAT SHOULD HAVE NEVER HAPPENED, AND WE ARE SEEING THE FALLOUT OF THOSE PROBLEMS WITH TRUMP'S DEFUNDING OF ESSENTIAL PROGRAMS IN OUR NATION. IN MY WORK IN CULTURAL STUDIES, I EDUCATED STUDENTS ABOUT THE POWER OF THE MEDIA IN INFLUENCING CITIZENS' CHOICES, AND THERE IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM IN OUR NATION TODAY WITH THE MEDIA INFLUENCING WHO WE PAY ATTENTION TO -- SUCH AS REALITY TV STARS AND MEDIA MOGULS OVER AND ABOVE THE SUFFERING AND WARS GOING ON IN PLACES SUCH AS SYRIA AND THE REFUGEE CHILDREN WHO ARE IMPACTED BY THOSE WARS. OUR NATION'S PRIORITIES ARE COMPLETELY OUT OF WHACK, AND WE NEED TO PAY ATTENTION TO ONLY NEWS ORGANIZATIONS WHO REPORT FROM THE FRONT LINES OF WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE WORLD TODAY AND THE ORGANIZATIONS -- SUCH AS UNICEF AND COMPASSION INTERNATIONAL AND THE UNITED NATIONS-- THAT ARE ON THE FRONT LINES IN TRYING TO BRING RELIEF AND JUSTICE AND PEACE TO REFUGEES AND IMPOVERISHED PEOPLE OF OTHER NATIONS. SINCERELY AND WITH GREAT LOVE, DIANE K. OLSON
