Me, Kenyan Kids, an iPad, and Angry Birds

20110726-061539.jpg

Today when we had a little time to spare before heading to Siaya District Hospital I had a chance to spend time with a few Kenyan children who had made their way to the porch where I was sitting. They had been given ONE armbands and were definitely looking for more goodies and were milling about. I thought how fun would it be to pull out my iPad and show them Angry Birds. Who doesn't love Angry Birds?

Just as I suspected the kids loved it and just laughed and laughed at the birds flying through the air and crashing through bricks and wood. They surely would have stayed and watched for hours if I had the time to spare.

Sitting there surrounded by so many children I was reminded how much technology American children have - Wiis, Nintendo DS, iPods, iPads, cellphones, TVs, laptops and the list goes on.

There is definitely a bigger and more profound point to be made here about excess that will likely hit me as I spend more time in Kenya. Until then, though, I thought this was a great moment to share.

Daily Action: Yesterday we visited health clinics that receive direct funding from the United States. Sign ONE's petition asking Congress not to cut funding for these effective programs that are saving lives. Then ask 5 friends to do the same.
