Just a glimpse

Just a GLIMPSE of what I saw of the children of Eastern Europe. These are the smiles of the children. For every smile you see, there are 5 who were not. These are the children who have never felt the love of a mother or father. They go to bed each night alone. They have never had anyone sing them a lullaby, or read them a bedtime story. When they cry out in the dark, "I'm thirsty, I need a drink", there is nobody to answer the call. There is nobody to stroke their hair, or brush a tear off their cheek when they are afraid in the night.  Don't let the smiling faces fool you. They are alone in the world. I saw what I saw and I can't forget it. Will you forget it? Will you turn away?
