I once heard a speaker say that it is great to follow your passions in life, to pursue that which you love, but have we considered what we detest? What gets us angry and fired up? What gets our blood boiling? Those things are as important for us to pursue as the things we love, when it all comes down to it. It is what fires us up and makes us angry that will drive us to make the world a better place for future generations.
What gets my blood boiling more than anything else is the abuse of women and children. The abuse of those who in many circumstances are the more vulnerable members of society. So, I went looking for just how I could make a difference.
I cant very well go overseas and help in a more practical sense as a newly single Mum with three little ones in tow, but I can budget to assist others in need where I can.
This is why I wanted to share with my readers that I have signed up to regularly (monthly) contribute to Rescue Mission For Children. Please check out this website if abuse of the vulnerable is your 'anger passion' too. This great organisation is particularly focused on freeing children from sexual slavery - what more noble and worthy cause could there be? In the 1800's they were able to largely abolish slavery (in the form of ownership of another human being at least) in the western world, I hope that in 100 years people will be able to say that sexual slavery of children (and women for that matter) was abolished in this new decade too.
