What Happened to Priorities?

i just read this quote on my friend lee's blog.

"it's extraordinary to me that the united states can find $700 billion to save wall street, and the entire G8 summit can't find $25 billion to save 25,000 children who die every day from preventable diseases."

first of all, i'm not even one of those people who thinks bono is the second coming. i'm not even a u2 fan. but this is out of control. that's 8 of the most powerful countries in the world who can't muster up 3.5% of that for something that they are created to do. 

as i get ready to watch the first of the presidential debates, i am convinced that despite the catch phrases being thrown around right now neither one of these men offers real change. but in the meantime, we as children of a loving, personal God...we at least have to get our priorities straight.
