  •  I have a friend who went on a missionary trip (0+ / 0-)

    to Russian orphanages. Their task was to take the children, usually 13-16 years old, that were being crowded out of the orphanages and literally turned out on the street and teach them survival skills. Survival skills. On the streets. Taught by fundamentalist christians from another country.
    I hope they were successful. But what would success look like in these cases?

    Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal. - Martin Luther King, Jr.
