We live in an age of explosive, pervasive religiosity. An Age of Religious Pluralism. - Peter L. Berger

Charity: Operation Smile



Changing faces with a smile - Operation Smile




An amazing little girl who had her cleft lip surgery.People ask me why I volunteer overseas so much.... It takes my eyes off me and allows me to remember what life is all about. When we use what we have been given (whatever that might be) to make a positive change for our world, that's when life make sense.... In a time when the world seems to be imploding with greed, there are certain things that will always remain invaluable... like the smile on this girls face when she realises her life will be changed forever. Her lip is still swollen and painful as she is only 24 hours post surgery but the joy in her eyes is unmistakable and makes my heart laugh without measure. I hope it brings the same to you. - plasticd1
