Video: #SaveTheChildren

If there’s one way becoming a parent has changed me, it’s strengthened my empathetic nature, especially so for children. This video is heartbreaking and eye-opening. Sometimes it saddens me that #firstworldproblems is a hashtag (and a cultural phenomena) because it reminds me of how self-consumed we Americans really are—we realize it, and so we make a joke out of it. But it’s really not funny.

I’ve lived in the Third World, but I’ve never lived in a war zone. This is just gut-wrenching.
