Then the ones who pleased the Lord will ask, "When did we give you something to eat or drink? When did we welcome you as a stranger or give you clothes to wear or visit you while you were sick or in jail?"
The King will answer, "Whenever you did it for any of my people, no matter how unimportant they seemed, you did it for me." .......Matthew 25

Children's Day Singapore

The streets were pretty empty and devoid of the usual school traffic this morning because Singapore celebrates Children's Day. Cambodia celebrates the International Children's Day on 1st June instead.

It just gave to cause to think of the great disparity between Singapore and Cambodia, and just how fortunate our kids are compared to the children in Cambodia, who despite the progress made in recent years, continue to be impoverished, uneducated and vulnerable to all forms of social ills.

I wish more Singaporeans can feel empathize with the tragedy of it all and just give a little of what they have abundance of, just to make the children's lives in Cambodia just that bit more bearable and happy.
