The Hunger Games movie vs. Hug Your Kids Message

Dr. Susan Harris Rimmer, the Manager of Advocacy and Development Practice at the Australian Council for International Development, wrote an interesting blog post today comparing the recent movie The Hunger Games, to the real plight of children in terrible situations around the world.

While it was hard on my heart to read of how badly innocent children are treated, she lightened my heart just a bit with how she closed her thorough and thoughtful post: So what are we doing to change the game? Watch the film this Easter, and hug your kids tight. Enjoy it. Just remember the reality outside the cinema, and do something, anything, to support the rights of children in developing countries, and here in Australia.

Susan, thank you!
