I’m currently at work listening to That was the worst Christmas ever by Sufjan Stevens and collating the Food Insecurity survey responses to send back to all the agencies who participated in the study.
Reading everyone’s stories about not having enough to eat, especially the comments reflecting on Christmas, especially while listening to this song – it’s all a little bit overwhelming. I can’t help but wonder whether any of these people are better off a year later, or whether things have gotten worse.
In time the snow will rise, in time the snow will rise.
In time the Lord will rise, in time the Lord will rise.
Not knowing how to make things better is crippling.
