Since I’ve been unable to sleep normally tonight, I watched a documentary called Open Heart on HBO. It’s about children in Rwanda who require cardiac surgery. There’s only one hospital in all of Africa that performs the operation…in Sudan. The children must travel without family. Eight kids. Facing high risk open heart surgery. Alone. But they do have each other, and they have the medical staff.
It’s absolutely beautiful. I wept.
The courage of the children…of the parents who must send them…it’s astounding.
If you get a chance to catch this doco, you will not be sorry. I promise.
