For the past few weeks, I have been watching the news, listening to the radio, reading the papers and scouring the interwebs and guess what? Everyone seems to have forgotten about the tragedy in Haiti. Isn’t that just like us? We are shocked and moved in the first few moments of every tragedy, then the next moment, only to be moved by Olympic gold medals, 360 degree dunks, American Idol auditions, and anything else that distracts Americans. Well, we must not give up on the many widowed women, broken families, fatherless children, grieving men, and we must bring the heart of rescue back to the forefront of our minds.
Well, on February 27, 2010, @ 7:30 PM, Compassion International is putting on a benefit concert (click here to watch it live on the 27th), with proceeds going to the continued process of rebuilding this devastated country. The concert includes Big Kenny, Alison Krauss with Union Station featuring Jerry Douglas, Jars of Clay, Mat Kearney, Matt Wertz, Brandon Heath, Dave Barnes, and NEEDTOBREATHE. Stop forgetting and watch the concert and if you can, GIVE.
